C+S Architects has won the international competition for the
redevelopment of the Ex-Royal Cavalry Barracks at Panquin
site, a plot of 37,000 sqm in the city of Tervuren in Belgium.
The practice defeated other 10 international design teams in
the two-phase design competition to win the design contract,
which was tendered by the municipality of Tervuren. Among the
first phase participants were Robberecht en Daem, archi+i,
Caruso St. John, Buur, Jaspers/Eyers, Sergison&Bates.
The overall investment of 60 millions euros, starting on
Aprile 2018, will transform the Ex-Royal Cavalry Barracks into
a luxury hotel, a spa, a conference centre and commercial
spaces and will develop three new housing blocks as well as
redesign the park and the public spaces.
Studio directors Carlo Cappai and Maria Alessandra Segantini
said: ‘We have always been interested in investigating the
relationship between the old and the new and this project will
allow us to give back the citizens of Tervuren a part of the
city which is not accessible at the moment. We are excited and
honoured to be joining the local community to nurture and give
back to a growing and changing neighbourhood these well-loved
C+S design includes a series of micro-urban public squares,
which will become all pedestrian and create a protected
environment for the citizen to enjoy the newly re-designed
park and public spaces, which are meant to tie together the
different parts of the project.
Alongside C+S, the winning multidisciplinary team is led by
ION & PMV as the developer, and also features the landscape
designers OMGEVING cvba, Koplamp Architekten, as experts of
restoration in Belgium, and local architects a33 and D E
