"Frans Masereel Centrum is a creative centre dedicated to the printed and visual arts, located in the Campine region of rural Flanders. It is a qualitative but constrained working environment, built by the Belgian architect Lou Jansen in 1972. Our mission was to extend the centre to the South by adding a new pavilion. This task required both attention to the architectural qualities of the existing centre and prospective attention to its potential. The project is neither an ode nor a criticism. Above all, we have sought to establish rich and complementary interrelationships with the existing environment and to load the space around the new pavilion with new possibilities."
