The versatile brick.
He is probably 7000 years old and today he is hipper than ever: the brick. At Rietveld, too, the ancient material is being stacked up today to create top architecture. Whether curved, scraped or stepped, the architectural possibilities are endless thanks to a zippered masonry bandage and continue to amaze. Different ways in which bricks are built bring with them different motifs and therefore also visual variations. We take you along a few realisations where the baked brick plays the main role and creates a unique look.
Modernistic renovation of 1935
A walking tip for architecture enthusiasts: at the end of the Soensenspark in Sint-Denijs-Westrem there are two special buildings next to each other. The first is newly built and stands out with see-through architecture, the second dates from 1935 and is a mix between package boat style and art deco. The Two buildings have the same owner, reedfield projects. That is a project developer - but delete that word because it does their dishonor - with home base on the coast, but mostly many customers in the interior.
#Groeninghe Art group VII
In the second week of June found Art Basel 2018. Left on Monday noon and Wednesday back in the Office but on that one short day that I spot was a whole range of impressions. Very many international galleries yet a special praise for the few Belgian galleries! #GretaMeert #ZenoX and #XavierHufkes
Construction, creation and innovation in architecture
The Rietveld DNA is meanwhile well known on the Belgian coast. And yet the brothers Peter and Thomas Moerman see an evolution: "When we startetd 12 years ago, no one did what we dit. People did not like our less is more style. Gradually this has changed. Time to renew ourselves now. Innovatio is growth. We do not want to become bigger, but more exclusive and innovative."

"In addition to the claustra connection, there is also the gradation of surfaces. On the one hand there are the horizontally mapped edges, on the other hand there is the filling-in between the windows that has been erected vertically. This gives us a kind of panel structure where the joints are accentuated with a thin strip of natural stone, a kind of shadow joint. They are just such elements that give a building a little more. A classic promoter would say: that costs too much money, mason that bricks but just in half stone, without that expensive line of natural stone. Rietveld Bouwprojecten sees the added value of those small details. "Koen Heijse - Caan architects
