rue de namur on site

A multi-disciplinary design team led by client LCEBE (represented by Sophie Le Clercq) has brought together architectesassoc, Setesco, Cenergie and contractor CIT Blaton who have in concert conceived a 7 000 sqm office retro-fit on site now, upgrading circulation routes, facades, user-comfort and overall energy-efficiency. Interior demolitions are rapidly uncluttering existing floorplates revealing high-ceilinged space destined for state-of-the-art offices, atop a welcoming see-through mixed-use ground floor. The oppressing concrete fa├žade presently overbearing street-space will soon give way to an air-tight timber-aluminium skin dotted with a generous hopscotch of delicately glazed oriels and full-height windows.
