Project published in a+t 39-40 RECLAIM Remediate Reuse Recycle

April 14, 2014

 Carlos Arroyo. Oostcampus. Oostkamp. Belgium

A unit formerly used as a Coca-Cola depot becomes a Town Hall and a Civic Centre. The industrial standard foundations and flooring, the load-bearing frame, the exterior skin with its insulation and weatherproofing, services, installations and equipment, boilers, water pipes, anti-fire installations, plumbing, drainage and even parking facilities, fencing and access have all been preserved.   

The author focuses the intervention with the approach of sustainable exuberance which involves reusing the existing elements as far as possible and retrofitting using simple technology with incredible results, as is the case with the GRG shells, which with minimum energy and financial costs completely transform the spatial experience.
