With its unique concept resulting in an exemplary synergy of economy, aesthetics and ecology, the building aims to set a precedent for how people and places can thrive in a highly urbanised context.
This project complies with the passive standards (EPB Brussels 2015), will bear the ‘Outstanding’ BREEAM certificate and will be WELL-ready.
To keep the CO2 balance as low as possible, the client has chosen to recover as much as possible from the existing building and to construct the new parts in wood.
During dismantling, everything has been aimed to reuse, recycle, and if not then only to waste. The design has been made so that the chosen materials are sustainable.
The main structure has been kept during the dismantling of the building and only a small part has been demolished (floors +8 and +9 and little building side of longue haie). The demolished parts are being replaced with CLT (cross laminated timber) structure, which is super sustainable.
