Renovation offices (old Campina brewery)

Project description

In Dessel the studio renovated the office buildings of the former Campina brewery to create an open and functional town hall. References to the industrial role played by the building in the past form a common thread through the architecture. The building’s contours were kept sober and linear, only nuanced by a wooden arch spanning the full width of the façade.

Inside the main hall footbridges and stairs connect a number of mezzanines that were built around a huge copper brewing kettle.
