FECAL FACE DOT COM LoFi Studio The shops and restaurants in the Vennestraat in Genk are remarkably multicultural: Bistro ‘t Vennehuys, Italian restaurant La Posta, CasaPaglia, scandinavian design gallery Galleriet, shoemaker Gianni, Turkish supermarket Dudemsa and others. Together they contribute to the ‘Street of the Senses’, as the city and the merchants promote the Vennestraat since 2007. The street can use several other opportunities in its environment to strengthen the coherence and image and connect more closely to C-mine through its creativity and culture. The transformed mining site, officially opened in 2010, is, since the announcement of the closure of Ford Genk in 2012, one of the central pivots of the new developments in Genk. Commissioned by the city Genk and IDE, the design team worked on six selected shop concepts for a make-over. Workshops were first held with the stakeholders to come from a macro vision for the street to a micro vision for each shop. Genk, Belgium 2012 - 2013
