 Offices And Social Appartments Goedkope Woning Kortrijk, Belgium / by BURO II & ARCHI+I

In Kortrijk, the offices of Goedkope Woning have been combined with rented homes in the social housing sector. Goedkope Woning was able to remain faithful to its objectives and vision on sustainability both with regard to residents and buildings and these ideals have also been clearly expressed in the company’s own office spaces. Maximum attention has been paid to guiding and welcoming visitors, and the employees have been given a simple and healthy working environment. The renovation was carried out with respect for the architectural features of the original building and the new comfortable city apartments – all of which are in the social housing sector – have plenty of natural light and outdoor space.

Galileo Apartment Building / by Pascal Arquitectos

Galileo Apartment Building / by Pascal Arquitectos

Residential building located in Polanco in which it’s façade achieves transparency and at the same time privacy by combining different cristal, wood and concrete opacities. A contrasted dialogue with the sorrounding constructions takes place, setting as well a guideline towards the modernity of what should be developed in the future; in the inside, all areas are naturally illuminated and ventilated without being exposed to the exterior.

On the 5th floor of a Parisian 19th century housing building, an apartment is entirely re-designed to make a home for an art lover. Initially partitioned into a series of small rooms, the dwelling space is now wide open, emphasizing the east/west orientation axis that allows natural light to spread in all day long from side to side. The former dividing wall is stripped down to reveal its plain wooden structure, creating a filter between the dining room and the living room. The open kitchen faces a wall sculpted by cupboards and framing welcoming International Klein Blue niches for the beloved art pieces of the owner.
