Design

Art & Build continues with its unswerving desire to create significant architecture which places the HUMAN BEING at the centre of its concerns. Its integrated approach, resolutely proactive where the ENVIRONMENT is concerned, is based on three fundamental vectors: time, sense, values. Taking into consideration the passing of time and widening the scope of effective solutions in order to preserve our planet constitutes one of the fundamental responsibilities of the architect. The question of sense revolves around believing that the future does not involve sophisticated buildings, but those in which the technical solutions are simple, tried and tested, and understandable. The values are those which are at the basis of the City: live together better and in relationship with the environment. From the coherence of the solutions selected and the thoroughness of their application are born exceptional LIVING SPACES, both convivial and cultural catalysers.

Art&Build was asked by a re-employment association to design a tricycle to be operated as a street food point of sale.
The practices' response to the brief was not only to require that food sold required little or no packaging, but also that the vehicle itself should be made of recyclable materials.
In response to the requirement for lightness, the design refers to the comforting image of an open basket, an ancient street vending tradition.

This building was created between two existing constructions. On one side a former town house in the neoclassical style, the last vestiges of the former residential Léopold Quarter and now home to the Bank Degroof. On the other side, an office building of modernistic style. In harmony with the former in terms of its proportions, and with a facade based on the principle of the golden rectangle, the new building adopts a contemporary language - in metal and glass - that contrasts with the context and lends interest to the sequence.
