Ghent, Slachthuisstraat - Voorhoutkaai
Spaans Fort in Ghent is a construction project with a contemporary look and feel. The building’s large-scale appearance was broken into a solid end building and a lighter, more transparent tail section.
The transparent section creates a buffer between the design and materials of the existing building and the new end building. This building with its magnificent views over Ghent’s water and towers is located at the end of a row of buildings and forms the end of the Slachthuisstraat. The materials used are a reference to the site’s original building – the Spaniards’ Castle. The parapets are a reference to the adjoining building and the overall design is a reference to the existing building on the opposite corner.
