Franco Belge

Neels Architects as Architects

The concept of the Franco Belge-restaurant project was to combine the dynamic and ambitious character of both young chefs with the UNESCO-world-heritage-labeled authenticity Bruges has to offer. The former grocery store was stripped and the extension was replaced by a new, open spaced expansion, visually connecting the open kitchen with the restaurant and the terrace. This intervention created two specific spaces in the restaurant. One with the cosyness around the fireplace for intimate dinners. And the other part for live-able dinnerparties with realtime kitchen action. Yet still the two restaurant-parts are linked to eachother by hexagonal accents and copper- coloured details. The result is an athmosferic restaurant, where everything that looks old is new.
