Description


Brussels, Belgium, 2009-2015

The mixed-use retail and residential complex is located on the Avenue de la Toison d'Or, between the two historical gates, the Porte Louise and the Port de Namur. Essential to the design is the urban context and the connection to the existing buildings. In addition, the programme and the sustainable aspects of the project form decisive elements. The strong verticality of the existing facade rhythm was continued in the design for the Toison d'Or building. The duality of the programme (retail and apartments) is translated into the façade design by means of V-shaped portals which act as a visual link between the two functions. These portals further create diversity and rhythm in the facade, in addition to emphasising the terrace spaces of the upper apartments. Le Toison d'Or contains varied sized apartments, 13,000 m2 of commercial space and 400 parking spaces. UNStudio
