The former bunkers at the North Sea in Ostend have undergone a complete metamorphosis in recent years: from a fuel depot to a place of co-creation and a testing ground for the circular economy and social entrepreneurship. OVAM acquired the building in 2013, and during the renovation, the circular social center O.666 focused on reusing materials as much as possible. The aim was also to achieve the most circular solution possible for the renovation of the facade. 
A total of 3 210 kg of waste was reused throughout the facade project. The building insulation included the use of insulation material, produced with 100% green energy and composed of 66% recycled glass. For the total facade area of 108 m², approximately 451 kg of glass waste could be reused, mainly from the automotive industry. For the visual finish, tiles made from 100% recovered PVC waste were used. All the tiles together amount to a total of 2 759 kg of waste. This brings the entire renovation project to 3 210 kg of waste diverted from landfill.
