Repurpose of a former potato starch plant in Coevorden
This project to repurpose a former potato starch plant at Coevorden builds upon the remains of that plant. To these I added new volumes with specific purposes and ambiences to contain dwellings. These dwellings mediate between two positions, namely home life and the workshop. My graduation project seeks physical contact with the former potato starch plant ‘De Centrale’. Here I regard present and future not as each other’s antithesis but as facets of an ongoing process that gives us our place in our social context. The qualities defining the design are to be found in memories, patination and scars.
