STEP RIGHT INTO THE FUTURE
Imagine a building that is so revolutionary that it doesn’t just promise responsible use of resources and ﬂexible space, but actually delivers it.
FEEL THE EXCITEMENT, BREATHE THE CALM
Occupying a prime location in the heart of Europe and in the centre of the Brussels European district, Science 12 is a unique location and game-changing environment to work. A place to ‘lean in’ when required and ‘lean back’ due to the ideal proximity to EU institutions and key business entities, that co-exist in a thriving restaurant, café and hotel neighbourhood.
“Design based on longevity and efficiency also means the building can evolve over time”
Structural densification reserves offer the potential to increase the number of floors, while ensuring flexible workspaces to easily configure and adapt to NWOW requirements. With true well-being in mind, planted terraces and a green roof provide a calming and regenerative work-life environment.
WE SCULPT THE LIGHT
The façade is divided into a grid structure of floor-high copper-covered shades. The shades serve as a climate shield to protect from direct sunlight and over-heating. The shades also give the façade a deep relief effect and reduce the building’s large-scale appearance.
The main entrance on Rue de la Science opens up to a double height reception area with direct access to the vibrant 387sqm of food and beverage retail space. The innovative design provides a unique hospitality space that can accommodate all types of public and private events.
