In an impoverished part of Ghent, against the background of nearby blocks of high-rise flats. Robbrect and Daem have converted an existing timber yard into new architectural studios. The roof of the shed, built by the wood construction company De Coene in the early seventies, has been partly dismantled.
The workfloor has become an outdoor space that will accomodate an arboretum, a swimming pool and a large open area for performances.
