Renovation Art and design workshop Boch - 12.066


Complete mission for structure and interieur rehabilitation


This commission is part of the overall transformation of a historically important industrial site into the new district of the city of La Louvière. The old factory buildings of the Boch Ceramics Company will be converted into a center of research and development for ceramics.

Specific features

Certain parts of this industrial building will be demolished but others will be conserved as historic souvenirs of ceramic making activities in La Louvière. A new circulation core will be built inside the existing structure and it will also serve to stabilize the building. All internal walls and floors of the project are constructed in exposed concrete poured on site. Some of the exterior facades of the extension are also realized in the same manner.
