Jardin d'union on site

The majority of jardin d'union’s principal volumes are now visible, offering a view of the coming skyline. Not easy slipping 163 new homes into the existing built fabric unnoticed … especially when they emerge all at once … but the limited number of flats organized around each vertical distribution thus breaking the ensemble up into digestible sub-parts should help. The dark brick skin will soon appear, and afterwards the contrasting white metalwork for terraces, railing, and especially the prow at the top of the hill. Built on a tight but standard budget, the project nevertheless meets Brussels’ rigorous energy-efficiency requirements while offering a healthy mixture of all sorts of dwelling types. Work on site will continue throughout 2018.
