permanent exhibition architecture at Cas-Co Leuven, Belgium
While the competition brief asked for flexibility of display the project realised a rather inflexible architecture built with oversized cellular concrete blocks that, with the simple addition of a bench running around the walls, invites for a multitude of uses. The exhibition space is designed to be specific to the institution housing it, which provides artists with free studio spaces. So the room can be also used for meetings, eating, screenings, naps, without needing any additional furniture. The walls are built with a cement block made in Greece often used in passive houses prototypes.
