As part of a competitive pitch, OYO was invited to design a large residential block for Wibier St Amandsberg (the assisted living complex for elderly people). We won the competition not by designing a building, but by designing ways to combat loneliness.
In 2018, OYO won a competitive pitch to rearchitect the town hall of Jabbeke, a small town in West Flanders. The original site was a traditional building with traditional functions. We approached the project asking ourselves, what does a town hall mean to people today? And how can it mean more? Our answers led us to create a space of welcome and public enjoyment.
