A shortlisted proposal to transform the 19th Century Stuivenberg Hospital in Antwerp, into a city park with new educational, cultural and community facilities. The original building was conceived by Baeckelmans as the result of an architectural competition in 1873.

Observing the roles and function of nearby public spaces, we collaborated with BC Architects & Studies to devise a scheme that would bind the various communities stemming from this complex.

The determining factors of our proposal outlined the restoration of the silhouette of the building and an interconnected web of landscaped realms. Rammed earth interventions would be formed directly from site, establishing a green perimeter and freeing up the open space to encourage social gathering and foster public growth.
