RBSC Alberta - 2012

2012, Zeebrugge (BE)

Between a container port and a marina, on the edge of a peninsula, the Royal Belgian Sailing Club is located.

Stacked laminated wooden beams, the glass/steel skin and the finishes are all built with a meticulous craftmanship in 100 working days.

The unheated glass passage serves as an insulation layer for the wooden core.  The building sets the goal of responding to the various elements of nature (light, water, wind, earth), resulting in a flexible boundary reacting sensitively to nature.

The sailors share their knowledge by navigating the low-energy building in a sustainable manner, as if on a journey in an ever-changing landscape.
