Located in the centre of Dilbeek, in a difficult context with a variety of contrasting situations. The question was how to harmonize the different situations, and at the same time produce a building with a quality of its own. First, with the volume. The new building is a soft transition between the scale of the houses and the imposing presence of CC Westrand. Then form. The gables along the street reflect the houses on the other side, but then become a great cantilever that looks CC Westrand face to face. Thirdly, with function. The only entrance is on the side of Westrand. Nothing happens in the other perimeters, being either domestic or natural. It is only on the side facing the cultural centre, where the auditorium rises from the ground, creating a covered public space leading to the academy entrance. Finally, with image. The dynamic facade creates an optic effect. If you walk towards trees you see trees. If you walk in the opposite direction, see the colours Hoppenbrouwers.
