    'We created this small town house on an old square in the centre of Ghent. The potentials of the tiny building plot are fully put to use in a design that combines the history of a place with contemporary living. The house is fair and square, old and new, equally conventional as unusual'

    'Our interventions do not have to be noticed; nor do we think that a strong contrast between the new and the old is always necessary'

    'Eerder dan een tabula rasa kozen de architecten voor de bouwstenen die voorhanden waren'

    - 'Portrait of a House' - thisispaper.com -

    'History learned that the house developed organically as expansions were added over time. True to the past the architects adapted the house to its specific needs re-interpreting the old rather than bringing the new, and again the house has found a new coherency as if nothing ever changed.'

    - 'Nische am Markt' - Reinhard Krause in Architectural Digest Germany -

    'Die Grundfläche war begrenzt, die Innenstadtlage ideal: Auf dieser schwierigen Basis entwarf das Architektenpaar Bram Seghers und Inge Buyse ein Ein-Personen-Townhouse, in dem einfach alles passt.'

    - Die Kleine Eiszeit -  Larissa Beham in Architectural Digest Germany -

    'Und plötzlich erscheint auch sinnfällig, warum die Szenerie an die „Kleine Eiszeit“ in Virginia Woolfs Roman „Orlando“ erinnert. Denn die literarische Figur, die 300 Jahre hindurch in immer neuer Gestalt lebte, und „De Roode Poort“ haben eins gemeinsam: Sie sind „ein bisschen aus jeder Zeit“.'
