architecten de vylder vinck taillieu - Estee

Estee is a model of an existing conglomerate that consists of an office building, an industrial hall and a house with a garden, situated along a Flemish motorway. For architecten de vylder vinck taillieu, this is the modern version of the popular Flemish square farmstead. Estee symbolizes both the private initiative and the Flemish entrepreneurial spirit. Living and working are intimately intertwined. The spatial dynamic of the private enterprise, however, is a thorn in the side of the planners and architects. It does not correspond to the ideal image of a rational division of the landscape into separate zones for housing, industry and nature. Must we adapt reality to this ideal image? Or should we rather use the dynamic of private enterprise to build an alternative, hybrid and prosperous living environment? Can Estee be transformed from an island along a highway into the building block of a high-quality and durable fabric for the territory?
