The Red Cross-Flanders hotel in Zuienkerke provides people, who due to illness, age, social circumstances or special needs are unable to go on holiday, with the opportunity to unwind, with or without their caretakers.
Located by a large lake in the rugged landscape of the West Flemish Polders, the circular volume – offers a 360° view of the wide surroundings and allows people with disabilities to navigate freely around the building.
"The hotel has an introverted and extroverted character, the duality of which is expressed in a very subtle way. The courtyard unfolds as an intimate place where you can retreat without hesitation. The public spaces are on the outside of the circle. There, the building fully opens up to its surroundings through the floor-to-ceiling glass sections." explains Thibaut Gevers, project architect POLO Architects.
