SVR-ARCHITECTS renovated the Casino Kursaal in Ostend, an architectural monument built in 1953 by Léon Stynen. This once bustling party palace, designed as a pivotal point between city and sea, lost its festive function over the years and, as a result of several renovations, turned in on itself. The current renovation does not just restore Casino Kursaal to its full glory, but adds transparency and modern comfort. And sea views.
