BE brussels: condominium + commercial offices

the post world war rebuilding of european cities was based on principles of repetitive techniques and initiated the transition to a modernism devoid of ideologies: the international style.  in the 60’s and 70’s that style spread an endless amount of office ghettos through our city centres.  the task on this project will be to embrace and nourish a modern life based on diversity, identity and ideals.

at the core of brussels centre, the very heart of a country politically confused over 2 linguistic communities and some say on the verge of division, JDS architects propose to take a stand and use architecture as a catalyst for clarity and opinion. the BE buildings will be a living complex inhabited by human beings in Belgium.
