Guest rooms: launched 2002
Verzameld Werk is a gallery located in the historical centre of Ghent and is housed in a building that once belonged to the Maeterlinck family (Maurice Maeterlinck won the Nobel Price for Literature in 1911) and that dates back to the 14th century. As a gallery, Verzameld Werk refuses to rely on well-tried methods and formulas. It serves as a platform for processes and cross-fertilization. Ever since its opening, almost twenty years ago, it has been an open house, a place in the heart of the city of Ghent that has remained a treasured secret for lovers of meaningful objects.
To continue in the same vein Verzameld Werk started renting out two guest rooms above the gallery in 2001. Thus Verzameld Werk not only wants to offer its guests attractive accommodation, but it also aims to render their visit even more memorable. Like the gallery the guest rooms were refurbished in collaboration with architect Jo Taillieu. The gallery featured in the 2000-2001 edition of the Yearbook for Architecture in Flanders.
