this architectural project concerns a community centre in loker, a village with 600 inhabitants in west flanders, belgium. the village has a rich social life which requires a new meeting centre and marc koehler architects has been selected to execute the new community space which will include several course and multipurpose rooms. part of the existing community centre will still remain intact with a new roof over it, extending the possibilities of use and creating an entirely new and flexible environment in which all kind of activities can be housed.
