The architects and landscape designers approached this building within the conceptual framework of an 18th century English Garden. The concept was to bring the visitor to the romantic natural setting and to confront him with emotionally charged dramatic ‘events’.
Deurne is the second largest district of the municipality of Antwerp, Belgium.

In Flemish the word ”OMGEVING” stands for “surroundings” and it stresses the importance of the space around us. It includes the immediate space surrounding oneself, one’s home, one’s neighbourhood, region, and even country.

The designs of this Belgian architects studio are thus consistently trying to explore this overlap of different scales in space, investigating the possibilities for a dialogue between them on cultural, social and environmental levels. Therefore, every project is always perceived as an opportunity to conduct this research, each time bringing not just a singular design but a complete and cohesive strategy for the given context.

Belgian text:

OMGEVING zoekt in elk stedenbouwkundig, landschappelijk of architecturaal project naast de ruimtelijke, ook de maatschappelijke meerwaarde en laat dit engagement doorsijpelen in zowel onderzoek, ontwerp als uitvoering. De menselijke schaal van de projecten wordt door het ontwerpbureau doorgezet in het principe van coöperatieve samenwerkingen. Zowel inhoudelijk als processmatig is collectiviteit een kernbegrip voor OMGEVING. Zorgvuldig samengestelde ontwerpteams per project vormen een netwerk van strategische allianties waarbij disciplines en werkvelden zowel intern als extern op maat zijn samengebracht.
