Irma and her husband Jos have a soft spot for architecture and contemporary design. In 1999 they purchased the defunct train station in Moere and hired architect Jacques Verbeke to convert the dilapidated edifice into their family home.
The guesthouse is situated in a repurposed wing of the old station. This section of the building, a former garage, had long been an eyesore to the department of historic preservation. The conversion to a B&B presented a challenge to the architects and construction managers. However, the idea of fusing cultural heritage, modern design and architecture ultimately guided the team on the path to success. On August 1st, 2011, after a year of intense renovations, Spoor.62 (translation: Platform 62) opened its doors.
And so, once again the old station of Moere became a destination for travellers who with suitcase in hand, and dreams in mind, come in search of rest, relaxation and blissful vacationing.
