Station Rancour: holiday homes in renovated former carriages in Belgium by sabine schweigert

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Article source: sabine schweigert

Two carriages of the M2 train, which until 1990 regularly hauled passengers along the Belgian railway network, can now be found inside “Station Racour” (Belgium). Skilfully renovated and refurbished, while at the same time adhering to the styles, colours and finishes of the original structure, today the carriages take on a new role as two four-star holiday homes, each of approximately 60 square metres and accommodating a maximum of six people.

The Head Office of Renson already was from the realisation a landmark along the highway. The successful concept, designed by Jo Crepain was in 2003 awarded with the FAB Energy Award and in 2009 with the Green Good Design award. To add a major expansion was an exceptional architectural challenge. The design of the expansion was again entrusted to Crepain Binst Architecture and consciously in the same spirit and architectural force worked out as the already existing.

One of the most innovative office buildings designed by architect Leon Stynen is located above the underground north-south railway connection in the heart of Brussels. When this building was completed in 1958, it was a technological tour de force, but 50 years later, it needs some adjustments.

KBC BANK – MARTELARENPLEIN in Leuven, Belgium by Crepain Binst Architecture nv

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Article source: Crepain Binst Architecture nv

In order to achieve a beautifully bordered off station square, an area of 210 m² was conceded between the signal box and the underpass of the ring road in order to build a building of 6m x 35m x 16.5m high.

Since the footprint was too narrow to accommodate the programme of a fully-fledged bank office, we conceived a 10m overhang on the first floor. This design immediately radiates the architectural force of  the building, which has been built exclusively in clear and black enamelled glass with vertical uprights around the 2 highest floors. As a result, the internal functions are discretely shielded from the context.

JORDAENSKAAI in Antwerp, Belgium by Crepain Binst Architecture nv

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Article source: Crepain Binst Architecture nv

The Jordaenskaai in Antwerp developed from the Burgt – the historic centre or first, small medieval settlement from which the city evolved. The construction site is a special location with prehistoric finds, remains of the medieval city walls and of the old Antwerp canal. The remains have been painstakingly integrated into the ensemble and are largely visible in the ample inner zone accessible to residents and visitors.

Arteveldehoge School Campus Kantienberg Ghent in Belgium by Crepain Binst Architecture nv

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Article source: Crepain Binst Architecture nv

“Building schools means building the future, as youngsters will assimilate and pass on their spatial experience of light, air, simplicity and beauty throughout their lives. The designers were honoured to have the opportunity to deliver creative social impulses of this kind. Following several earlier ‘trial runs’ in the centre of Mortsel (merger of three primary schools), central Antwerp (UIA) and Gasthuisberg hospital in Leuven (midwifery), this fourth winning competition design for a school building is the most expressive to date.

OFFICES TIENSE VEST in Leuven, Belgium by Crepain Binst Architecture nv & BURO II & ARCHI+I

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Article source: Crepain Binst Architecture nv

Station neighborhoods are prominent meeting places and urban anchors within a city. They are potential impulses which can activate cities towards a stronger metropolis. There where the heartbeats of arriving and departing, sojourning and saying farewell, the skyline is the silhouette of a station’s neighbourhood, a fact that stays in your memory as a traveller.

Offices Infrax West in Torhout, Belgium by Crepain Binst Architecture nv

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Article source: Crepain Binst Architecture nv

We were commissioned to build Infrax West’s new offices after winning a competition in which Infrax’s high degree of ambition had to be expressed in a strong conceptual design that matched and enhanced its corporate identity. Our characteristic ecological and sustainable values were given expression in this project by using a metaphor for a forest in which a host of slender concrete trunks were topped with a broad green ‘crown’.
