It is located next to the city station, on the site of the former market: now a new courtyard is being attached to the station, which will become not only a public space, but also connect the new center with this transport hub.
The structure was built of concrete panels, but it is partially hidden by a second facade made of copper mesh: it also serves to protect the building from the sun's rays. The architects envisage "aging" of this material - the center will look impressive even when the metal is covered with a green patina. In general, the structure is designed for active use and for a minimum of care: the project is devoid of any unnecessary details and looks more like an industrial structure than a cultural object.
On the other hand, the building houses not only the Ypres Cultural Center (CCI), but also the Youth Center (JOC) and the Center for Educational Projects and Activities (ARGOS). Therefore, its "users" will be citizens of all ages, a significant part of whom will be young. It is quite possible to assume that the building is rapidly deteriorating, and the details in this case would be the first to suffer.
The main auditorium is designed for 554 spectators; it is the only room where there is no access to sunlight. It is also completely isolated acoustically from the rest of the building. A youth hall for concerts and celebrations for 500 people was made more open, and the lobby and bar even received open terraces with views of the city.
