Two historic retail properties in a unique location on Ghentâs Veldstraat and Korenmarkt are revived with a mixed shopping and residential project. Combining renovation with new construction, the two corner premises are merged into one project, with a spacious two-level shop premises on the ground floor, and five apartments centred around a communal patio on the upper floors.
The revaluation of the neo-gothic corner turreted house from 1885 is the point of departure in the design. The faÃ§ades and the interior, as well as the spatial layout of the residential parts, are kept in their current form and attest to the historic transformations of the building. The fascinating mix of old and new, and shopping and housing, is what makes this project unique.
