MULTI (formerly Brouckère tower) (Brussels, Belgium)
This assignment pursues the transformation of a modernistic tower (1969) in the centre of Brussels from a unilateral office building into a multi-faceted construction with added public value. The renovation has become a catalyst for creating a pedestrian zone that connects public spaces in the area. The building is being transformed from a heavy, black box into a bright, transparent and inviting construction.
The MULTI project has been selected as one of the laureates for ‘Be Exemplary 2017. It is for the reassignment of an emblematic, contemporary office building that links public space with an accessible city platform. It is a large-scale reconversion that overcomes a number of major urban challenges, with ambitious and stringent goals in regards to the reuse, with as many components as possible from the original building being retained in the renewal. The ambition of large-scale reuse is innovative and serves as an example for other projects of a similar nature. A key to the success is the involvement of partners active in the circular economy from the very start of the preliminary design stages.more...

Located in Hoboken, Belgium, this building modernised the image of zinc as a leading Belgian industry while keeping the heritage of the site.

For this project, CONIX RDBM provided main architecture, interior design, urban landscape and canopies.

Residential Project (Woods, Leuven, Belgium)
The rhythmically striking facade elements is the key feature of the building. Built-in terraces on the side of the road bring depth into the facade, while large windows on the building creates openness. Four facades each with their own character but connected by the rhythm of the panels. The finely detailed green acidified concrete combines with bronze joints created a stylish overall look that matches the green park lint. On each floor there are about twenty-one high-grade student rooms, 157 in total, with the top floor being assigned as the common areas. The views on the track, Kessel-Lo, the station environment and the forests around Leuven form a varied background for the students.
