Ostende, place of 'sexual healing'
Post by Sophiebelgium on Nov 14th, 2014, 06:32am

Hi Everyone, my name is Sophie and i'm from Belgium. I'm a student interiorarchitecture and i'm doing some research after marvin gaye and the periode he stayed in Ostende, Belgium. My focus is on the appartement where sexual healing was made. I'm trying to 'reconstruct' the appartement trough stories of people who worked with him or lived with him. My questions for you guys is what would you do with that appartement. Would you like it of it was a museum that you can visit? Or is it to commercial? Would you like it of it was just empty? Or other people lived in it? And why would you do that specifically? What is the Reason for example if you want it to be a museum?

Thanks you very much for your help!

Hi Sophie laugh

WoW what fans would give to be a fly on the wall of that apartment in 82'. I hope that whatever you do, the apartment stays a piece of Marvin and his legacy. Sexual Healing was one of Marvin's greatest contribution to music. It should definitely keep the name and existence of Marvin Gaye inside of it.

I have a photoof the building but not inside. Now it's just an appartement where people live. it's renovated so there's nothing left behind from him. But i'm trying to reconstruct it by stories that people who worked with him or lived with him tell me. How do I upload a photo in this forum?

Why would you like to see it? because of some adoration for Marvin Gaye? If you reconstruct the appartement and put it in a museum in Amerika or some where else, would it be the same for you?
