Warehouse 1, smithy and lamp warehouse
This project concerns a second restauration phase, in combination with the esthablisment and extension of a warehouse 1, a smithy and a lamp warehouse into a multipurpose event space an horeca. The extension follows the historical logic of the building by creating an extension to the forgery at the backside and frontside, with a winter garden near the inner area and ancillary spaces along the street. An elongated bar element structures the smithy and the lamp warehouse. An identical bar element is provided on the tram tracks in warehouse 1, allowing an open plan for this space. The morphology of the existing building is continued in the extension. The new, modern volume wants to respect the existing building.
