Scope and content:
This project series documents the Casa Van Middelem-Dupont in Oudenbourg, Belgium. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 61/90. The office assigned the date 1994 to this project.
The project files document the repurposing of a 200 year old farmhouse and stables, as well as the addition of new buildings. Siza collaborated with Roberto Cremascoli, Andrea Smaniotto, Ueli Krauss, Daniela Antonucci, and Maurice Custer on the project. The project is divided into a residential unit, a guest house, and an art gallery. The original farmhouse was transformed into an art gallery and the new buildings serve as housing. The housing units located on agricultural land form a U shape around the courtyard. The forms and materials of the new units were selected in order to respect Flemish architectural typologies. The buildings were designed in 1994 and completed in 2001.
Documenting this project are studies, design development drawings, working drawings, structural drawings, and technical drawings. Textual material includes project documentation. Photographic material documents the models, construction work, and the built project.
