Won: Abbey site Ten Bogaerde Koksijde

OMGEVING has won the Open Oproep Winvorm competition for the refurbishment of Ten Bogaerde in Koksijde. With this redevelopment, the municipality wishes to upgrade the former abbey site to a unique place where heritage, art and landscape come together.

The abbey site Ten Bogaerde contains a rich and diverse monumental heritage, the oldest parts of which date from the 13th century. Following the approved landscape management plan (2017), several interventions are proposed which can be carried out in the short term. An important point of attention is to reintroduce the ‘spirit of the place’ and to safeguard the serenity of the inner courtyard.
