As part of the cultural program “Vues Sur”, the ICA_WB asked Specimen to express an architectural approach by fitting out two old gatehouses on the site of the Bomel slaughterhouses in Namur. We have invested the space around the sentry boxes giving shape to two singular objects in their environment. The architecture was therefore displayed in public space under the mysterious appearance of two translucent volumes. ⁠Packing the sentry boxes induces the creation of a new space: an in-between which was the theater of a sensory experience for the visitor, who could experience this ephemeral space and feel the tension between the old brick building and the lightness of the new intervention.⁠
