Inge Donné completed her bachelor’s degree in Interior Architecture at Lucca School of Arts, Brussels, and her master’s degree on the topic of adaptive reuse at Hasselt University. After internships at Baccarne and Lens°ass architects, she researched the reuse of water towers and created a masterproject for the water tower of Hoeilaart (BE) as co-working space.
Bie Plevoets studied Interior Architecture at the PHL University College in Hasselt (BE) and Conservation of Monuments and Sites at the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation in Leuven (BE). In 2014, she obtained a PhD in architecture at Hasselt University; her thesis was entitled ‘retail-reuse: an interior view on adaptive reuse of buildings’. Her current research focuses on the theory of adaptive reuse, and preservation of spirit of place. She teaches courses on adaptive reuse at Hasselt University in the specialized master programme in Interiors ‘Adaptive Reuse — exploring spatial potentials and the poetics of the existing’.
