About

Dierendonckblancke architecten is based in Ghent and was founded in 1999 by Alexander Dierendonck (° 1971) and Isabelle Blancke (° 1973). The office currently has 19 employees.
The office portfolio includes projects of several scales and programs such as cultural centers (Avelgem, Beselare, Kasterlee, Lubbeek), schools (Riemst, Antwerp), care projects (Gierle, Genk), group homes (Ghent, Antwerp) and private homes (12K, Gelukstraat).

The office first drew public attention with their community center Spikkerelle in Avelgem, which was nominated for the 2009 EU Mies Award. From then on, their work became increasingly known. Among other prizes the office has been nominated several times for the EU Mies Award, Belgian Building Awards and FAB Awards. The work of Dierendonckblancke has been exhibited in several exhibitions in Brussels, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Madrid, London and Sao Paolo. The work of the office was recently exposed in a mongraphic exhibition, 'Dierendonckblancke, Praxis' at the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussel.

Alexander Dierendonck

(°23.03.1971, Nieuwpoort, Belgium) graduated in Architecture at Sint Lucas in Ghent in 1994. He founded Dierendonckblancke architecten together with Isabelle in 2009. Alongside his role within the practice, Alexander was a visiting Professor at the Peter Behrens School of Architecture in Düsseldorf in 2017 and is a jury member for several architecture schools and institutions in Belgium and abroad. He has been a member of leading group “Pilot projects living: New forms of collective living in Flanders” and “Agrarian Architecture” for the Flemish Government. Prior to starting the practice, Alexander worked for several offices in Paris including Agence Dominique Perrault and Agence Manuelle Gautrand.

Isabelle Blancke

(°01.07.1973, Veurne, Belgium) graduated in Architecture at Sint Lucas in Ghent in 1996. She founded Dierendonckblancke architecten together with Alexander in 2009. Alongside the office, Isabelle has been invited to sit on a number of awards and competition juries and is a jury member for several architecture schools and institutions in Belgium. Isabelle was also member of the editorial board of the ‘Architectuurboek Vlaanderen n ° 14’ in 2019. Prior to starting Dierendonckblancke Architecten, Isabelle worked for several offices in Paris and in Belgium, such as Agence Dominque Perrault, Agence Patrice Mottini and TV Stéphane Beel – Xaveer De Geyter.
