Text description provided by the architects. The work of the Belgian painter Koen van den Broek is based upon polaroid pictures that document his travels throughout America. As a result, this project was conceived as a travel through different universes, an architectural roadtrip with various destinations.

From the center of the studio, a high and oblong atelier (0) accessible by car, 6 exorbitant wooden doors provide access to distinct ateliers.
