    Default Brussels; Willebroek towers

    Willebroek Tower



    International competition for an urban landmark combining living and office spaces

    Given its emplacement along an important entry of the city, the project becomes an urban landmark.

    It is divided in two major parts: offices and apartments on the higher level, and shops, bars and restaurants on the lower level, articulated by a ‘void’.

    The aim is to combine two scales: the city (urban scale) and the neighbourhood (human scale).


    Urban scale:

    Shaped by two towers with different heights.

    The facades are generated as structural and aesthetic elements, which repeat the pattern of crossing lines visible on the ground plans. These create continuity between vertical and horizontal parts of the building, as well as developing links with the industrial character of the site. The offices have got a clear entrance from the main street, and the apartments are given breathtaking views over the canal. All levels have been designed as a flexible floor plan, in order to allow various layouts and arrangements.


    Human scale:

    Engendered through public spaces on the ground floor(shops) and the first floor (esplanade with pavilions) of the building, thus allowing different festivities and cultural events. The patios of the offices allow light penetration and vertical perspectives through the building.

    The building’s ground floor is sliced across by several breaches, allowing numerous framed perspectives, from the street to the canal.

    * Progettista capogruppo: Conix Architecten
    * Gruppo di progettazione: Christine Conix, Fabien Dautrebande, Philippe Lemaitre, Pedro Miguel Monteiro de Sousa
