“De Tijger”

For my next project I had to team up with a fellow student. The assignment was to design 2 buildings on one site, which already has an existing building. This was to be demolished and replaced. For the design stage I worked with Helene Baneux. The object was to have a public soup bar on the ground floor of one building and a semi-public area in the other building. The next levels were to be apartments accessible for people in a wheelchair. And the top floor was an apartment underneath a pitched roof. This came with new challenges.

Helene and I decided to be more creative with the soup bar and connect the outdoor seating area with the one indoor, by turning the facade into a bar, both inside as outside. We also wanted to create a shell around the building with one material, namely slate tiles and finish the other sides with another, this time wood. The wood was purposely put in different stripes, to refer to the old name The Tiger. That’s also why we named our new site “Soups & Stripes”, as a nod to the old building.

The second part of the assignment, the implementation, was to be completed seperately, each choosing one building. I made the drawings for the soup bar, Helene did the ones for the semi-public side. This time we also had to comply to all the rules and regulations needed to get a license to demolish the old site and build the project.

Below you can find some examples of the design stage and the implementation stage.
