Overpoort, Student Complex, Ghent, BelgiumProject infoBack

Did you know that of all the colors in the rainbow, the color orange stimulates the mind the most? We did.
That’s why we used lots of it in our design for a well-known students’ home/retail complex by Wereldhave
in the notorious ‘Overpoort’ student area in the city of Ghent.
And to make matters even smarter, we added some cerebral-cortex-tickling quotes into the mix,
pretty cleverly made from orange mosaic floor tiles, or as steps on the bright orange staircase.
If you want to read them all, you’ll have to literally elevate your mind by taking the stairs
and enjoying the view from new intellectual heights.
Wasn’t it Schopenhauer who said: "Wer kann steigen/Und schweigen?” Ah yes …
He probably wasn’t talking about a fun, orange staircase, that gloomy gus.
If only Creneau would have been around to cheer him up at the time. Ah well, guess we’ll have to settle for Ghent’s intellectual giants of the future.
