Avelgem Community Centre, near Gent, Belgium

Avelgem Community Centre
The project is situated in a small village. The site is on the border of a protected natural reserve on one side and near the village centre and community church on the other side. Our aim was to construct a compact building. By stacking the functions and using the existing slope of the site we could do this. In this way the footprint of the building was reduced and space was preserved for open air activities. This also means less foundation on a unstable underground.

Oostduinkerke Swimming Pool, Oostduinkerke, Belgium

Oostduinkerke Swimming Pool
The swimming pool is conceptualised as an oblique surface, forming a bridge between the dike and the beach. The space under the surface accommodates the pool and secondary functions like changing rooms, lockers, first aid and lavatory. Two large incisions position the open air pools. The position of the surface protects the pool from sand and wind. A third incision accessible from the dike creates a platform. Under this stage, a first aid post and public toilets are accessible from the beach.
