We have begun converting the Wagenhuis, which is one of the oldest textile factories in Ronse. To ensure the building will exist for another 140 years, we have come up with a project focusing on change, based on three scenarios. First scenario: apartments. Second scenario: bedrooms with bathrooms and a shared kitchen. Third scenario: workshops and offices.
The roof, left derelict, has been replaced by a green roof on which solar panels will produce around 60% of the electricity needs. Rainwater is treated using a cascade of plants. For indoors and the furniture, parts are reused from old looms and building materials collected locally. The clay floor, planters in the bathroom, earthy colours and lots of wood will all contribute to bringing in nature.
