This new building repurposes, renovates and extends a derelict fire station into a new hq for the port.

An intriguing Belgian building conversion: farm, including five buildings, becomes a private family home and veterinary practice. The ground floor of the residential building with the adjoining cow stables was converted into a veterinary practice and a garage. The upper floor accommodates a guestroom at the front and the children’s bedrooms at the back. The windows were recessed in the roof’s depth to conserve the rural character.

House GEPO
The garden is the living room, the small lake the bathroom. The kitchen you’ll find next door. OYO chose for a minimalistic approach, omitting fancy details. There is no need of ornament. This and others choices result in a low budget home that sticks perfectly to the basic idea of living, functioning very open minded.

Ice Rink Liège
This building appears to be’ all about the exterior’: shaped like a whale, very eye-catching but why? The pursuit of the icon has led much large-scale architecture of the last decade and has been criticised for producing stunning but ’empty’ architecture lacking the consistency and depth of say the International Style.

The allotment creates a condition that is both generic and specific, context and non-text. The house deals with this condition in an apparently indifferent way, whilst in fact it is questioning the allotment: it is reformulating the concept of the front, side and back facade by addressing the surroundings in equivalent ways, and it is consciously leaving any kind of fencing behind.
