Intelligent refurbishment answers inner-city challenges with two faces

Hemmed in between the Bondgenotenlaan and the Puttegang, ‘De Bondgenoot’ needs to fit into a complex context with two faces. On the one hand, a grand avenue with post-war reconstruction buildings in an eclectic style, on the other hand a cluttered rear of annexes and raised commercial premises. The two sides call for a twofold project: commercial premises and student housing, each with its own entrance. The functional mix of ‘living above shops’ prevents a monotonous burden on the area.
