OYO Architects as Architects

The project involves a new subproject on the WZC Heiveld care site in Sint-Amandsberg. It concerns a new project with 30 assisted residences, a semi-subterranean car park, a multipurpose space and a revision of the landscape and the public space. This demonstrates OYO's affinity with designing a project in the care sector for a public commissioner, namely OCMW Sint-Amandsberg.

 

The initial master plan was questioned. A monotonous volume was divided into two nodded volumes. In this way, dynamic outdoor spaces are created in the surroundings where various activities can be organised. The concept of the master plan and landscape was also presented by OYO for this project.

 

There is a mix of one and two bedroom apartments. The entities are divided into two programmatic strips that contain the living spaces on the one hand and the night area on the other hand. This rhythm defines the overall image of the project and also breaks the scale of the project in relation to the wider environment. The living spaces also have a direct relationship with both the private terraces and the semi-public circulation. We conceive a principle in which the circulation is more than just a corridor, but a space where opportunities arise to meet, relax, keep plants or do yoga.

 

Furthermore, on the ground floor of the middle block located on the inner courtyard, the multifunctional space has been arranged. This offers views throughout the care site. Urban farming is also organised in the landscape design in such a way as to stimulate social interaction and a healthy living environment for the residents and the neighbourhood.
