Bata Housing Complex

Brussels
Belgium

A former industrial building converted into residential accommodation, the development features 47 loft-type apartments plus an additional six accommodation units in a new building. Despite the extensive renovation involved, a deliberate choice was made to draw on existing values expressed by the former Bata shoes factory, evoking a past that is, to many, a living memory. Historic features are made to echo in an architecture that pays homage to man’s labour and his industrial heritage, finding a contemporary expression through dialogue between new and existing fabric.
