Art and Build offices - renovation

Brussels
Belgium

Art and Build offices and architecture studios are distributed on several levels of the building located chaussée de Waterloo 255 in Brussels.

The surface area of over 2500 m2 distributed over several floors is given over to open-plan offices. The layout and choice of materials is deliberately sober and ecological in style. In 1999, Art & Build was awarded the seal of eco-dynamic company – an award that Art & Build has since been able to retain and improve upon.

ING Bank agency and offices

Brussels
Belgium

The architecture of this bank is designed as a tangible expression of the intersection of glass and wooden panels, forming parallels and volumes that cross or interlock. The bank no longer needs a logo, the architecture - expressed through its interplay of shapes - already provides it.

Carré 92 - Development of a Business Park

Gennevilliers
France

The architecture of this business park, for which Art & Build developed the master plan, is based on the principle of very flexible building offering numerous variations. Manufactured industrially, using sustainable materials and with advantageous construction costs, the buildings offer large surface areas on each floor, laid out around central cores and common halls that the occupants share. The relationship between the buildings, the connecting links between them, and the play of built and empty spaces within a modular system create a sense of unity and harmony with the environment.

Van Volxem

Brussels
Belgium

A former industrial site alongside the Paris-Brussels rail line and close to the Brussels South TGV station, the site offers many benefits for the development of a broad range of activities. But the originality of the site suggested an approach that broke with traditional office building solutions. Also, the architects had the brief to renovate an existing building adjacent to the site and restore a listed building on the far south of the area.

Andromède Office Complex

Blagnac (Toulouse)
France

This office complex - to be built in several stages - draws on the demand generated by the proximity of the Blagnac aeronautical workshops in an urban development zone. The design takes into account the climate of the region with a facade finished in metal and wood and numerous solar protection devices that combine to produce the overall style. The second stage of buildings are laid out around a garden and company cafeteria and place the emphasis on the convivial atmosphere of an office complex destined to accommodate diverse businesses.

Kirchberg 2 - Complex of six office buildings

Luxembourg
Luxembourg

Five office buildings arranged in a U-shape linked by a communicating pathway and interior garden, with a sixth building accommodating shops and offices. This is the K2 complex, located on the plateau du Kirchberg in Luxembourg. Totalling 55 000 m2, the complex possesses a strong, communal identity while still allowing for differentiation between the individual elements so they can be appreciated as distinct, stand-alone entities.

Clearstream International's Headquarters - Complex of four office buildings

Luxembourg
Luxembourg

Four buildings make up this office complex providing 50 000 m2 of work space and almost 1 000 underground parking places. Its style is based on the dialogue between glass, steel and large, sometimes curved, terracotta panels. The complex as a whole has a strong and coherent identity, while at the same time the architectural expression of the individual buildings is clearly highlighted. The most efficient ventilation and air-conditioning systems available ensure user comfort. The technology used for the facade, with its considerable use of glass, is based on the active double-skin principle.

Royal 120 - studies

Brussels
Belgium

This renovation project was formerly home to the editorial offices of a leading Belgian daily newspaper. The quality of the existing building on the rue Royale suggested a major renovation while at the same time conserving the structure’s frame, with the adjoining buildings, giving onto a neighbouring street, being rebuilt. The project consists of creating a vast covered atrium between the two existing buildings, linked by walkways and stairs with meeting and discussion points laid out at intervals.
