Production studios for Les Ballets C de la B and LOD by Jan De Vylder architecten
At the Bijloke site in Ghent, Jan De Vylder architecten constructed a production house for dance company Les Ballets C de la B and musical theatre LOD.
The result is two alienating constructions back to back; as if they have been pushed apart, yet still contemplate one another through unusual viewing holes.
Quite remarkable in the building are the façades on end which, unlike the heart of the building, are completely transparent. The glass façade does not only reveal the function of the building but also its construction. A poetic combination of building materials, window settings, staircases and concrete floors with only a glass curtain separating private from public.
