This assignment pursues the transformation of a modernistic office tower (1969) into a multi-faceted construction with added public value. The renovation involves the transformation of the ground floor into a pedestrian zone, connecting the surrounding public zones together. The building is being transformed from a heavy, black box into a bright, transparent and inviting construction.
The transformation concept of an emblematic tower in Brussels into an urban platform has been rewarded by the city itself by nominating the project as a Laureate in the « Brussels Be examplary buildings » programme.
