transformation of an elderly home into collective social student housing
Complementary to the energetic renovation, the project consists of transforming an elderly home into student housing. Through a curatorial approach of redesigning the semi-public spaces, the inherent spatial qualities of the original project were preserved while simultaneously creating new atmospheres linking the building to youth culture. Furthermore, in accordance with the location and perception of the building, a system of lo-tec dynamic façades was developed, resulting in an ever-changing face of the building through op-art techniques.
