Reconversion in Ghent, Belgium by Axel Devroe

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Article source: Axel Devroe

About the site:

It all started when three friends bought an abandoned industrial lot that was in a terrible condition, but had an exceptional potential for transformation.

Situated in the middle of a city-block in the dense, historic center of Ghent, the L-shaped lot is surrounded by back gardens and townhouses.

The existing buildings were divided into three houses. Between each new dwelling small patches were scooped out of the buildings, making room for enclosed private gardens with a distinctive urban feel.

The new complex for the municipal library and the Academy for Performing Arts in the heart of the Flemish city of Aalst will have a lively, urban character. It may sound contradictory, but precisely because the plan of the design by KAAN Architecten is functional, the result is a certain spatial freedom that enriches the experience of the building. The complex, situated on the corner of Oude Graanmarkt and Esplanadestraat, will be completed in 2018 – a century on from the end of World War I.

A stable turned into an office in West Flanders, Belgium by Studio Farris Architects

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: Image MEDIA AGENCY

Studio Farris Architects transformed a small barn, part of a farm complex with several buildings, into an office space with meeting room, library, office desks and a resting/reading area.

The owner wanted to have a small office detached from his house so he would be able to work from home at times. The stable was no more in use so he decided to use it as his home-office.

House CM in Oedelem, Belgium by Bultynck Kindt archtitecten

Article source: Bultynck Kindt archtitecten

The property is located on the edge of the center of Oedelem. The spot is marked by far-views over the Flemish polders. Given the location of the plot and the purpose achieved an optimal living experience was the greatest possible contact between the house and its surroundings. The openness of the polders was extended in the plan of the house. To achieve this was left of a central volume, around which the house is organized. The volume contains all the technical and practical features such as storage, kitchen, toilet and stairs. The ground floor was as follows: the kitchen was facing east, the dining area and the lounge were implanted respectively in the south and west and the entrance is on the north side. On the floor, the bathroom is the central point around which organized the bedroom. As a result, the life follows the position of the sun throughout the day, the people experiencing the daylight time and again in a different way. The design of the volume ensures that the kitchen, dining and living room arenot one room but a succession of sequences.

Bruyn Est in Neder-Over-Heembeek, Belgium by B612ASSOCIATES

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Article source: B612ASSOCIATES 

The project is situated on the edge of the urban on a clear transition point between the urbanistic stretch, the fringes bordering the roads, and the areas opening into the landscape: the alignement of the buildings defines the roads and the public spaces, but at times it draws back, it opens, then it spreads out to make place for the structural, open and landscaped entities. The site and brief analysis has allowed us to define the guidelines and the project objectives in order to compose a friendly and durable environment that is beneficial for the commodations and the neighbourhood.
