However, while the city has worked to preserve it’s history and especially the medieval look of the city center, most of the preservation is of the building façades Download best fiends for free. In many cases, I walked into an old building to see a very modern interior. The Belga Queen is one of the first restaurants I came across in Ghent deutsche spiele kostenlosen vollversion.

Like many buildings in Ghent, Belga Queen has a completely new inner structure build to support the historic façade. It is almost a building inside a building to support the old structure herunterladen. From the outside, the first thing people notice is the front of the building is angled slightly out toward the street. Most people assume the oldest building in Ghent was falling over before it was restored, but it was actually built that way mp4 converter download kostenlos.

The home of the Belga Queen is in the 13th century Korenstapelhuis (Grain Storehouse). The angled front was designed so the sacks of grain could be hauled up into the storehouse without being damaged by bouncing against the front of the building whatsapp für huawei herunterladen.

The Belga Queen is the brainchild of architect/chef Antoine Pinto who designed the interior architecture, furniture, concept and menu. The restaurant features large communal tables, a beer bar and a club on the top floor e mail konto herunterladen. Massive wood beams provide much of the structural support while a stainless steel elevator and stairway dominate the center of building.
