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.
In creating environments that move people, we take our inspiration from socially relevant themes. We want to improve liveability in cities, help people to work effectively and with enjoyment, inspire children to learn and help them have fun while doing it, design circular buildings, make existing buildings more sustainable, relieve our clients of worry, and inspire design teams.
In order to create added value for our clients, we focus on six specific areas: complex urban projects, the 'new way of working,' learning environments, cradle-to-cradle construction, transformation, and integrated contracts.
