Located in a context of sculptural industrial buildings along the Albertkanaal, a canal connecting the cities of Antwerp and Luik, an inexpensive building was designed that houses an extraordinary multitude of functions: concierge apartment, office space, meeting room, cafeteria, changing rooms, wood- and metal workshop, a garage and outside storage space. The fence around the plot forms an inexpensive façade with an intriguing moiré effect, through which its black hypodermis, consisting of insulation material, remains visible. Inside the more complex functions are fittingly located in its head. An incision marking the main entrance splits the head into 2: One part facing West containing the cafeteria and office space, the other facing South and housing the concierge apartment which has a loggia looking out over the canal. The result is a beastlike structure that can easily compete with its older neighbours when it comes to sculptural shape and recognizability.
