‘New Museum for Guy Moerenhout’s car collection’

Since the 1970s, Guy Moerenhout has been collecting and restoring cars that are in one way or another linked to the memorable car builder Carlo Abarth.
It’s also includes Fiats, Ladas, Seats, Saabs and others. Trough the Guy Moerenhout Racing team (GMR) the cars are often found in perfect running condition.
Guy Moerenhout himself, a former rally driver and race tuner, still participates in historic rallies.
This passion grew into the Abarth Works Museum, whose collection today numbers more than three hundred special cars.
Because the collection is still growing AIDarchitecten was appointed to design a new museum.

A walk via eleven plateaus around a central void leads the visitor through many years of automotive history.
While the old cars are bathed in natural light through the use of a translucent facade, strategically placed bay windows in clear glass stimulate the curiosity of passers-by.
In addition to the exhibition, room will also be made for a library with the enormous book collection and a museum café.
One of the plans is to have a fleet of cars available for rent, either for rallies, or just for a leisurely drive.
The new Abarth Works Museum has meeting rooms that can accommodate events for up to 400 people.

‘Two perpendicular buildings which together define a central garden’

The project consists of a residential and an office building, that have a shared architectural and spatial character
that is determined by their elongated orthogonal forms, hybrid timber and concrete structures, and continous winter gardens.
The winter gardens act as a buffer space helping maintain more comfortable internal living and working conditions
and they give vibrance to the area through the variety of activities that take shape.
The shallow dept of the building maximises natural light and cross ventilation,
and the use of timber reduces the embodied carbon of the construction.

‘Living among the flowers’

Flora is being built on the grounds of the former Flora Halls (flower-auction site).
The site is located on the edge of 19th century urban fabric, adjacent to a campus-like park.
The proximity of the hospital and other health-facilities in the park entailed the ambition to establish a masterplan strongly focussed on care.
The site will be landscaped with a wealth of flowers and blossoms as exuberant witnesses to the colorful past.
OFFICE designed the first set of buildings, named Urban Villa en The Strip.
The Strip consists of three identical buildings with three floor levels.
Analogue to the Urban Villa, the ground floors of the strip contain mainly commercial spaces, the buildings-entrances, bicycle storages and technical spaces.
The volume on top of this plinth has a smaller footprint and accommodates six houses with a garden.
The plinth of the Urban villa is similar to the Strip, the facade is finished with white tiles, and forms the base of a lush roofgarden.
Yet, the urban villa consists on top of the plinth of five identical floors with on each level six classical residential apartments, opening on to a genereus wintergarden-loggia.

which are cleverly staggered and relate to the surrounding ensemble and at the same time form an independent frame with their pent roofs.
The design develops from the given situation by taking up the shape of the gym, transforming it and skilfully continuing it.
The projecting and recessed course of the facade front along the main street defines a new, large space that is generously covered in the area of ​​the schoolhouse.
Towards the cemetery, the long, calm facade, which is easily structured by the small setback of the school building, is beneficial and thus leaves the graveyard with its dignity.

‘An ensemble of existing and extension’

The design plan calls for the existing curative education school to be expanded with an extension in the southern area of ​​the property.
The project envisages a three-storey building that is connected to the existing building via a lower, vertically staggered wing.
One goal was to visually merge the annex with the main building.
The extension is similar in size and volume to the old building.
Its appearance is conceived as a related counterpart in order to emphasize its belonging to the old building.
Not only are architectural elements transferred from the old building to the new one, but also vice versa.
The color concept and the dormer shape are taken from the new building in the old building.
This creates an appropriate balance and an ensemble in which it is not immediately apparent which part is new or existing.
The shape of the roof cleverly softens the building mass and gently embeds the new building in the sloping topography.
The main entrance is moved from the courtyard side to the long side of the building and faces the Kapfsteig.
The arched opening marks the entrance and is used for orientation.
The common entrance for all ages strengthens the students’ feeling of togetherness.

‘Competition for a school building’

Renovation and expansion of a school building by Thomas De Geeter Architektur.

Bächelacker, Switzerland


‘Corner plot on a strategic road’

The project is located on a road to Brussels.
The small corner lot has been empty for more than 15 years.
The contrast in scale, buildings and atmosphere between the two
adjacent streets of the plot can hardly be bigger.
The angle is accentuated by placing a main volume on a base, which
offset from the front line. This is reduced both in height and depth,
to connect to both adjacent neighbors. In this way the building integrates nicely into its
street scene, and is in harmony with its environment.
At the head of the building, ideal for visibility, there is a commercial space on the ground floor.

‘New gymnasium and schoolhouse Holderbank’

Competition – 2th Place

As a classical street village, Holderbank does not yet have a clearly defined village center.
This proposal responds to this deficit and, with the creation of a precisely defined playground, offers the opportunity to generate an identity-creating central location for the entire village, which can also serve as a community and festival site.
The existing municipal properties together with the new buildings form an ensemble and a public center.
At the heart of the complex is the new playground, which extends behind the existing multipurpose hall.
The new buildings are located around the square: the gymnasium to the north, the school to the west, and the new parish hall to be built in the south in a second stage.
The square occupies the middle of the ensemble, the surrounding areas remain undeveloped and are close to nature and designed as retreats.
The ensemble integrates itself very well into the granularity of the existing village structure by dividing the required space program into individual buildings for the gymnasium, schoolhouse and community center.
Diverse spatial connections embed the new space in the existing road and road network – a north-south axis runs along the former multi-purpose hall and an east-west axis through the northern part of the playground.

‘Renovation and extension of the secondary school Chliriet’

Competition – 2th Place

Three staggered volumes form the new school building.
At the southeastern end, a covered pause hall forms the first and lowest link in the series.
The clear shape of the new building creates a natural reference to the existing multi-purpose hall – the staggering and inclination of the roofs – and gives the school grounds their independence.

‘Senior housing Männedorf’

Competition – 3th Place

The building ensemble consists of two elongated buildings, which are stepped in plan and section.
They are arranged in a V-shape so that a small square on the Haldenstrasse is created in the east – a clear address for the new retirement home.
Southwest opens the V to release the view of the lake and to ensure an optimal tanning of the facades.
Between the two buildings and around it extends the park, which invites you to linger.
The volumes of the buildings can be mediated by their settlement and shape between the different building masses of the surrounding buildings from the post-war period and integrate well into the urban structure,
because they are slim sized at the ends and divided on the long side by projections and recesses .
The arrangement of the buildings across the slope makes it possible to gently pick up the topography of the site through the construction and connect the ground floor to the surrounding park without the need for terracing.
Along the Haldenstrasse, the two subtly offset building ends complement the green street scene and thus strengthen the neighborhood character of the district.

The basic principle of the apartments is their multiple orientation, to the park, shared outdoor space and lake views.
The apartments are mostly three- to four-sided oriented.
All apartments have private, protected outdoor spaces that face south or west and from which the third floor offers a view of the lake.
They are separated from the apartment with a fully openable and glazed front folding sliding doors.
The apartments each have a spacious entrance, cooking, living and dining areas which are connected to the loggia.

Kunstwerf Groningen

‘Counterpart to the machine factory’

The new Kunstwerf is a true maker’s place, designed as a counterpart to the machine factory,
it is a robust building with a rationalized structure and clear organization.
The design enters into a dialogue with the surrounding buildings. Not only does the new building follow the logic of plinth and roof,
the façade has also been designed with the same attitude and fascination for making as the surrounding industrial heritage.
The new Kunstwerf houses four companies under one sculptural roof.
It is a compact building and thus makes room for a square at the center of the site.
The central square connects old and new and is a place full of expectations and possibilities

Beurs Brugge

‘A covered square’

1ste place in European tender

The City of Bruges has selected the architectural team of Eduardo Souto de Moura and META as the preferred bidder for the new exhibition and Congress building in Bruges.
The preferred bidder’s team has produced a design that shows respect to the city because it lets Bruges be Bruges, not opting for architecture as spectacle.
Following the advice of the assessment committee led by bOb Van Reeth, the College of the Mayor and Aldermen chose this proposal for its genuine and timeless design,
and this in respect of appearance, visual value and use of materials. Rather than attempt to radically change the site and its surroundings,
the principal aim is to integrate the proposed design and to add value through quality.
The building does not have the ambition to be spectacular. In contrast, it is robust and present, and in an honest and enduring manner.
The building is designed as a covered square. The activities are organised horizontally. The functions in the conference centre are stacked.
Although the exhibition and conference facilities are housed under one roof, they are structurally separated from each other,
which makes double and simultaneous use of the building possible.
The exhibition space can be fully openend on three sides,offering the City the opportunity to create a covered square on days when no trade fairs or events are planned.
This means the people of Bruges also gain a covered square.
