What if architecture transformed the rubble of a former industrial site into a rock solid community?
The scene: At the stunning borders of the river Scheldt, on the former 'Algemene Bouwwerken Maes' concrete production site.
The story: Living meets Working, nature meets city life and liveliness meets tranquillity to create the feel-good movie of the year for all commuters and residents involved.
Thanks to a healthy amount of quality time spent with the city of Ghent, a Masterplan was drawn up that allowed the variety of residential units and the two adjacent office areas to co-exist in a manner that are both separated and linked by a rolling green backbone and open vistas. Quality of life puzzled together in a way that makes sense to our senses and sensibility.
The result is LUX: 237 carefully considered 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom living units that invite their residents to move, connect and enjoy in a spacious area right in the middle of everything a lively family could wish for.
