Start construction works CADIX A4

BULK Architects and General Architecture are joining forces for a family-friendly construction project with spacious homes and a slide towards the courtyard. Antwerp Alderman for Urban Development Annick De Ridder has given the long-awaited starting signal for the works of the most family-friendly construction project in Antwerp. In 2019, AG Vespa launched a competition for a project that would focus on a family-friendly development in the emerging Cadix district. Of the 27 entries, the proposal from the Limburg family business Dethier, designed by the Antwerp firm BULK Architects and General Architecture from Sweden, best matched the vision of the city and the neighborhood.

Eric Henrist

After a fantastic twelve years at BULK architects, it is with mixed feelings that we announce Eric Henrist, a valued colleague is leaving our office and partnership. Eric joined BULK in 2011, and as a project architect he played a crucial role in the realization of countless projects, such as Cadix in Antwerp, Hof van Roey in Rijkevorsel and De Tuinen in Puurs.

As our go-to guy for technical design and construction, he showed his best side time and time again. His pragmatic approach, solid technical knowledge, desire to build and ability to solve complex problems with a smile made him a valued partner for colleagues and clients.
Based on that appreciation, he became a partner in 2018. Eric has brought BULK not only a wealth of technical knowledge and professional talent, but also countless moments of joy. We say goodbye to one of the pacesetters of our team, we will miss his sense of humor and pleasant personality. 

From October 2023, Eric will leave our office for a new adventure at GO! of the Flemish Community. We are grateful for the many years together and wish Eric every success with his new challenge.

For all questions relating to his projects or any follow-up, please contact us via info@bulkarchitecten.be. We will then make sure that your query reaches the right person.
