The Cosmopolitan [Brussels]

 

Location
Quai aux Pierres de Taille 16/ rue du Canal 28
Brussels [Belgium]
Description
Ongoing project of complete transformation of a 60s high rise office building in the center of Brussels, into mixed-use housing that will welcome 130 new apartments. This building will comprise a variety of dwellings ranging from compact smart studio units to generous 3 bedroom apartments; each of them having a terrace commanding stunning views of the city. The Cosmopolitan will answer to the newest security and environment prescriptions : green is the color, from the toe to the top, by its highly efficient architectural concept, the energy efficiency and the construction materials. The basement as well as the top floor will be dedicated to offices and will have separated lift and front door. In the South-East corner of the site a mid rise apartment block (26 units) is added, continuing the street front. The whole site is cleared and opened up, with large trees and sheltered pedestrian circulations.
