CREMATORIUM SIESEGEM, BELGIUM KAAN ARCHITECTEN


THE VILLE RESORT-CASINO, NORTH QUEENSLAND WOODS BAGOT


The Ville Resort-Casino Australia, is open for business after a two-year renovation costing $31m. Woods Bagot was tasked with upgrading a 1980s building in Townsville, a small North Queensland township on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef. The existing hotel was simply built, but had little connection to the surrounding landscape. Woods Bagot’s redesign takes advantage of the scenery, tropical climate, abundant water, and views across the Coral Sea. “Our design was inspired by the natural and historic qualities of Townsville,” says Wade Little, lead designer. “Echoing the architectural vernacular, the resort encourages natural cooling through broad verandas, abundant fanlights, brise-soleil walls and aligned doors and windows.”


KAAN Architecten has designed the new Crematorium Siesegem on the outskirts of Aalst, Belgium. Located in the countryside bordering the Belgian city, the building, which has a 74 x 74 metre footprint, merges with trees and shrubs that line the perimeter of the surrounding park. Crematorium Siesegem encompasses two ceremonial assembly halls. The largest has generous dimensions, with seating for 600 people. Next to the ceremony spaces, the technical aspects of the building are also a fundamental part of the design. The architects endeavoured to disclose, rather than hide, the cremation process, creating an “unusual yet effective polarity between the mechanics and the serenity”. The architects commented: “The choice of materials and the detailing are paramount to achieving a placid mood.” For the exterior, they chose “the rhythm of béton brut”. The interior walls are matt and have a textured render, while the ceiling has a rough sprayed finish to ensure muted acoustics – “a fundamental feature of such a building”.
