Current owners of the Astrid Hotel in Brussels were seeking to completely restructure their facilities in order to provide clients with a quicker, simpler, more efficient and economical service, all set in a bespoke interior providing tranquillity and well-being. Art & Build took part in preliminary brief development to optimise space use and functionality, opening up the reception desk area, refining furniture and fittings, incorporating food and beverage points, all within the existing hotel footprint.
After four decades of use, this building in the Brussels Léopold district required extensive renovation. With underground parking on six levels, a three-storey pedestal and 14 floors of office space, it offered excellent functionality but all the interior fittings had aged and worn. These were all redesigned with the greatest care. Public areas, in particular the sports and fitness centre in the pedestal, were given new finishings, the effect of new materials and lighting totally rejuvenating the building.
