Project Summary

City hall and civic center recycled from former factory

The aim of this project, initiated by the city of Oostkamp, 7km south of Brugge, is to regenerate a former Coca-Cola factory. The 4ha site has to be transformed into a new City Hall and Civic Center for the municipality with a population of 22,000 and opened in June 2012. The key idea of the project was not only to recycle the main construction and materials but also to reuse the space itself and its technical infrastructure.
