The new shopping centre at Sint-Janspoort covers a whole block in the centre of Kortrijk.
With its interiorised street pattern and monumental atrium – the garden of light – this shopping centre forms a diagonal link between Steenpoort and Veemarkt. The tower closes off one end of the Romeinselaan.
The volumetry of the block, which contains offices and homes as well as shops, matches the scale of the surrounding buildings.
