0231 Opera Ghent, Ghent, BE
Early 2019 Atelier Kempe Thill, in collaboration with Origin architecture and engineering Brussels, was invited for the Open Call by the Flemish bouwmeester for the transformation of Ghent’s famous opera house into a new multifunctional cultural centre. Our team proposed to open the houses towards the city, added a new chamber music hall with a panoramic view over the city, and re-organized the logistic zone in a more contemporary way. Further we proposed to reconstruct the early 19th century interior of the main auditorium and worked on a precise strategy to reinforce the sustainability of the complex. The proposal received an honourable second prize.
