This project, itself part of the historic entity that characterises Stationsstraat in Lanaken, consists of three sub-projects.
The first involved the demolition of a shed and residential home on the grounds, along with the construction of a new apartment building with 13 units. This building aligns seamlessly with an existing, former industrial building (Van Aubel Brewery), which has been renovated into an apartment building with three apartments and a three-storey high patio. Finally, the historic basements that formed the connecting link between the three historic sites, have been restored in their entirety.

The new structure features a wooden shell. A ‘soft’ material, the wooden cladding contrasts distinctly with the brick facades of the existing buildings. This contrast creates a synergy between the various entities, with respect for each individual building. An additional advantage is that the wooden cladding lends itself nicely to the development of a monolithic building. Adding a monolith to the entirety is a necessity in this case, as the addition of various styles, types and colours of buildings would result in an unbalanced whole. The choice of wood also implies that the facade will undergo a natural aging process. This in turn makes the building a living architectural piece that adds a new dimension to the historic entity.
