The city of Ghent revealed the design for the City Office of Ghent. Kraaijvanger Architects together with SAR architects are to design the project. “Their project was selected thanks to their thoughtful and clear urban design and architectural choices, for the strong vision on sustainability, mobility and the new way of working”, says Martine De Regge, SCHEPEN of Facility Management of the City of Ghent. The municipal library and the administrative center will be incorporated in one building.
building for the circular economy
Our ideal is a building that provides energy, purifies air and water, provides space for biodiversity and produces no waste.
We use as many healthy and reusable materials as possible and close all cycles in the building (water, materials, food, energy and air) as much as possible.
Our ambition in each project: 100% Cradle to Cradle and energy-generating. And with our design for City Hall Venlo we have been making a great leap forward in our achievement.
