The idea is that the early modernist industrial heritage is redesigned as an architectonic product
Detachment from it's original context makes the concept ready for serial production,
with an adapted realization for each new environment the center is placed in

The costs of this reissue are estimated around 30 million euros
The van abbe karel I factory was unique in its size and the sawtooth shape of the roof rose almighty above the area,
providing the fourth floor of the building with the much praised and smooth northern light
Economic forces caused that the town's central pharmacy was taking over the more natural products of the plant
in the early sixties
