In 2006, Maurice Mentjens added warm wood to the interior of this sixteenth-century building located in the famous Stokstraat in the city centre, which was then known as Kiki2. In 2016, it's time for an update. Kiki had a minimalistic interior in mind that could be completed relatively quickly. Her goal was to create a light, open, and clearly-organized presentation space.
