The loom origin
Sauleda, is a century-old company, specialized in all types of fabrics and awnings. They proposed us the challenge of designing a special stand for their annual fair. Studying the history of Sauleda, we were imagining its origins, with people working on those old handmade wooden handcrafted looms, where hundreds of threads crisscrossed. So we asked ourselves how their current clients would react and what would they experience, when they arrived at the fair and found themselves inside of a large loom. Feeling surrounded by threads that intertwine up and down, as if they were participating in the origins and beginnings of a fabric’s production. This is how the main idea and the project of Sauleda’s stand came to be.

How to fit into a site at the heart of an overall restructuring project on a city-wide scale and design an extension on an already very crowded plot of land?
As one consistent entity, the Sports Centre pulls together a large number of elements from different briefs, i.e. an already-existing gymnasium, swimming pool and indoor tennis courts with the creation of a multi-purpose arena, a boxing hall, a bodybuilding hall, two dojos, a football pitch with stands, outdoor tennis courts and a clubhouse.
The new building fits in as a unique wing to the west of the existing L-shaped buildings, unifying the whole in a U configuration.
This creates an inner courtyard, a genuine place to breathe between buildings and a generator of light that unifies all access points.

As one of the world leaders in financial and business services, Deloitte is also a trailblazer when it comes to innovative, contemporary working culture. It’s no wonder, then, that their new building at the Brussels Airport site in Zaventem would become a reflection of what the company stands for. It’s an international melting pot, where work and leisure go hand in hand and where flexibility, communication and versatility are key words.
Jaspers-Eyers Architects, which has extensive experience in designing contemporary work environments, took up the challenge for developers Codic and Immobel. The challenge was to transform abstract concepts into tangible architecture that is firmly grounded in the present and future. Architecture with respect for the existing complex, which is partially renovated. The result is both sober and imposing, a modern giant with one eye on the landing strip and the other on Zaventem.

The redevelopment project of the old Caproni factory focuses on enhancing the stylistic features of the 1920s’ architecture and aims to transform this old plant into a large complex for Gucci, holding offices, showrooms and spaces for fashion shows and operations connected with graphics, as well as a canteen and restaurant. Recovery and enhancement of the characteristic shed buildings was the first element of the redevelopment project: set out in a regular pattern across the site and featuring modular structural bays, the abandoned industrial warehouses with exposed-brick facades generate, thanks to their spatial layout, a seamless interaction between the inside and outside. Particular attention was paid to the Hangar recovery, a volume of “exceptional” size, once intended for the final assembly of Caproni aircraft, that is now used to house the fashion shows from 2017. Moreover, the Hangar is enhanced by a large open and covered square connected with the main pedestrian axis facing to via Mecenate. This covered square acts as the core of the pedestrian system that includes a tree-lined square, common gardens, patios and green walls. Inside the regular layout of solid structures and empty spaces, a new six-storey tower closely interacts with the old construction: characterized by a glass façade covered with a regular pattern of sunscreens, the new building breaks down the site’s symmetry and tends to draw together all the different functions.
