Two Buildings-One Project The brief of the competition, held in 2003, was to transform the building of the former Hallemans breweries into 31 housing units for artists, including an in-house workspace. On top of the transformation, a new construction was necessary to provide the needed surfaces. This new wing creates space and views the courtyard and the surroundings. To improve natural lighting, the upper part of the new building is withdrawn from the property limit, this allows nothern light to enter in the workshops. Starting from each wing, a network of staircases and corridors, crossing the brewery and the courtyard, reaches each doorstep. This outdoor circulation provides the courtyard with a unique dynamic, and enables spontaneous meetings between inhabitants. A New Life for Industrial Inheritance View more View full description
