VDAB Office Building in Sint Niklaas, Belgium by BOB361 Architects

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

Article source: BOB361 Architects

Considering the urban anchoring of the site, the angles of this building block are the regulating elements. The VDAB-project anchors itself with the existing context on the corner of the Noordlaan-Drie Koningenstraat, which is in direct relation with various public functions (post, ministry of finances), located near the main road. It is an intuitive meeting point located on a wide footpath. The second angle is the location for a possible extension and is at present, included in the project’s garden.

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Article source: HUB

The ‘Fabriek’, located on a corner in Schaerbeek bordering Noordwijk is renovated into the home base for the organisation Art Basics for Children. The location of the old industrial complex is characteristic of the friction between the corporate office environment of Noordwijk and the heterogeneous urban fabric of Schaerbeek. The underlying goal of the renovation of the ‘Fabriek’ is to allow space for ABC to work in this urban field of tension between the corporate and socio-cultural environment surrounding the site.

Low Price Private House in Tienen, Belgium by AST 77 Architecten

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

This compact house in a quiet neighborhood in Tienen . Proposed by the architects vision has led to a remarkable architectural appearance that attracts attention in the street but whose shape remains very simply.

Thanks to the total housing concept one could offer an answer to the limited budget and the not so favorable orientation of the land. To exploit the southwestern orientation to the street as possible, the architects swapped the “front and back “. That way they have a terrace and a garden , not to the rear of the house , but on the street laid out so that the living areas could be targeted. To the southwest in this logic to the traditional location of the areas to rotate, the front door to the back of the housing is provided.

Parlement Francophone Bruxellois in Brussels, Belgium by SKOPE

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Article source: SKOPE

The new program includes: the seat of Brussels Parliament (PFB : French speaking part) and the restoration of the former Postal Relay (Renaissance 1694) as a polyvalent space. It would have been risky to chose the easy way by the creation of a mimetic building right wing of The Parliament or propose a dissonant solution with a draft bill only contemporary. Skope’s approach was different; inspired by the history of the place while assuming contemporary issues.

New residential and mix-use tower in Antwerp, Belgium by C.F. Møller Architects

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source:  C.F. Møller Architects

The architectural idea of the building is derived from an inside-out perspective, where the social qualities of the building are a dominant driver for the design: Often in tall buildings, the sense of community amongst the occupants is challenged by the fact that you hardly ever meet your neighbours, except coming and going via the lobby and at the lifts.

The Energy Arch – “De Energieboog” in Tienen, Belgium by AST77 architects and engineers b.vba

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Article source: AST77 architects and engineers b.vba

As a spin-off of IMEC, Photovoltech nv. became one of the most important European producer of multicrystal- line silicon solar cells. Photovoltech was founded in 2001 and has three major shareholders namely Total, GDF Suez and IMEC.

After the first years of investments in the solar cells development and an industrial expansion, the company decided in 2007 to install, on their own business estate, the first electrical production photovoltaic unit. The challenge that was given to the design team, was to create a construction for this photovoltaic production unit on the same innovative manner such as Photovoltech does with the production of their own solar cells.
