An ambitious architectural concept
Located in the heart of Brussels' European district, this emblematic building, brought to life by its ambitious architecture, houses a new set of offices belonging to the European Parliament.
The composition of each facade is optimized according to its orientation and the surrounding environment, while the entire building has a BREEAM Excellent rating, testifying to the design's focus on sustainability and energy conservation. The building's performance in terms of acoustics, safety and interior comfort is also excellent.
A changing building
The organic shape of the building plan involved the development of numerous profiles in order to allow the facade, made up of prefabricated cells with a double thermal break, to adapt to the ever-changing angles. The different colors of the vertical decorations adorning the exterior give the tower a different appearance depending on where the observer is standing.
An interesting fact: for the first time in the city of Brussels, the building's heating requirements are met by a large number of deep geothermal wells.
