Market Hall in Ghent / Marie-José Van Hee + Robbrecht & Daem, by Hufton + Crow

The Marie-José Van Hee + Robbrecht & Daem designed Market Hall in Ghent reinstates the presence of old urban areas that had become unrecognizable. As an urban interior, the inside embraces the passer-by with a dual modulated wooden ceiling, whose small windows scatter light inwards. The exterior, the entire building in fact, seems to assume a respectful role relative to the nobler historic stone buildings. 

We have previously brought you 
images of the project, but these latest images by Hufton + Crow truly capture the experience and highlight the project's materials and principles. A complete gallery of their photos can be viewed after the break.
