Opening Ibis Budget Gent Dampoort hotel

The opening of the Ibis Budget Gent Center Dampoort Hotel took place on March 16th. Wyckaert was responsible for the construction of the hotel with 119 rooms and an underground garage complex with 71 parking spaces.

The hotel is located within walking distance of the historic center and close to the companies in the North Sea Port harbor area, targeting both tourists and business guests.
Through its architecture the monolithic volume refers to the typical harbor warehouses in a contemporary way. The public areas are located on the ground floor and are directed towards the future “Madeleine” park. The red raw bricks combined with bare steel or anodised aluminum are the most important materials.
The construction of the hotel is part of a larger project that Wyckaert will realize on this site on behalf of the THV Compass – VDM Invest. Within the foreseeable future we will complete both a high-end residential project and a residential project for the rental market.
