The factory buildings of Ryhove in Ghent, Belgium, were given new life by TRANS Architectuur I Stedenbouw, which reworked the layout and created a neat pitched roof design. The reason for the project lies within contemporary meanings of commercial success and the corporate image's misalignment with them due to an outdated working environment.
TRANS Architectuur I Stedenbouwn built an on-site underground parking space, as well additional interior space. The architectural practice used a terraced house typology to inform the exterior of the house, hence the facade is composed of parts of about a five-meter width and the triple pitched roof design is a signature element of the overall aesthetic construction.
During the referbishing processes, studio TRANS Architectuur I Stedenbouw uses prefabricated and standardized materials that largely favor and contribute to a cost-effective construction.
