• OPEN.Y.OFFICE

    Open Y Office is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Ghent. It’s engaged in the fields of architecture, design and planning.

    The office has grown from the idea to handle each project as unique. Without a pre-determined formal idea, we try to ask the right questions in order to come up with the right solutions. We accept the challenge to design on any scale, whether it’s a spoon, a house an office building or a masterplan. At the moment we have projects running in Belgium, France, Denmark, Serbia, Sao Tome & Principe and Congo Brazzaville.

    As an Open Office, OYO.IS always looking for new adventures and collaborations.
