Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won the European competition for the transformation and extension of the new arts campus of the Karel de Grote Hogeschool in Antwerp. The new university building in the Van Schoonbekestraat will provide space for 600 students and staff for three academic masters courses in visual arts (graphic design, jewelry design – goldsmith, and autonomous arts) and a professional bachelor education in photography.
The opening of the new building is scheduled for September 2018. The existing sister school of the 50s will be transformed according to the needs of the new arts campus and partially demolished. On the east side of the complex a new flexible studio house is realized. In this building there is space for large studios, modern workshops and an exhibition hall of the college.
