Artois Tower

August 2016, Dijledal cvba Leuven

The Artois tower was designed for the competition for a new landmark in the city of Leuven (Belgium). Located on a prime location at the crossing of the two rivers the Dijle and the Vunt., the new tower needed to include a minimum of 84 apartments. The surrounding architecture dates back to the period post World War II. Large industrial complexes were erected in functional architecture with modernistic styles.

The design of the tower was highly influenced by these surroundings. We wanted to create a strong connection with the site, on both the level of cultural heritage as well as on a physical level. That connection was created by our ‘technical space’. This space is formed by elevating the nine highest floors, creating an open space where people can meet. The industrial character of the surroundings is reinterpreted in this space. The technical equipment which you normally want to hide, becomes the focal point of our social meeting place.

The opening itself guarantees relationships between the tower and its surroundings, providing views on the waterside and the industrial buildings. The old industrial site transforms to a totally new city center where culture and living and working on the waterside go hand in glove.
