Casino in OOSTENDE
(Zeedijk)


Arch. L.Stynen


After the second world war, a tournament was organized to replace the casino which was broken off by the Germans for the Atlantikwal. The winner was Léon Stynen.

During the years 1960 an unhandy theatre tower was build, breaking the link to the sea. Lack of care for the building brought breaking off the building close iat the end of the years 1990. Anyway, the decision was taken to restore the building, giving it its autenticity...
