Park Abbey

Design & Build - Park Abbey - Leuven

Sien conducted a feasibility study and produced the master plan for converting the Park Abbey in Leuven into the National Museum of Religious Art and Culture. In the feasibility study Sien examined the design and positioning of the future museum, outlined the consequences of the architectural interventions and calculated the costs of the entire conversion. The master plan also set out broad lines for the conversion of other buildings, such as the tithe barn, the mill, gateways, the coach house, pavilions, etc. Finally, Sien transformed the Locutorium into a visitors’ centre and created an outdoor tourist trail with audio guide.
