In the context of the urban centre of Ghent, a contemporary rooftop extension was added to an existing historic building. While the main volume was kept, due to its precious ornaments on the façade and interior, the rear façade and the roof were completely rebuilt. The new intervention was clad in a natural bluestone with a neutral colour to prevent a dominant element on top. The building now reads as a single cohesive intervention.
