Emerging Belgian office GAFPA was founded in 2008 by Floris De Bruyn, Philippe De Berlangeer and Frederick Verschueren, shortly after finishing their studies at the Sint-Lucas School of Architecture in Ghent. Their school is known for its hands-on, pragmatic approach and this shows in their growing body of work. Their Weekend House in Wachtebeke is a prime example of their philosophy, with its utilitarian approach, down-to-earth feel and connection with the surrounding landscape. The team works on a variety of scales, from private houses to exhibition design. Ongoing work includes a single-family townhouse in Ghent’s Gentbrugge district.
