May 2019, Maatschappij voor stedelijke inrichting commisioned by Re-Vive & Alphastone // in collaboration with NoAarchitecten

The former Grand Magasins de la Bourse is located in the center of Brussels (Belgium). The building lost its prestige over the years. With this project we want to seize the opportunity to make a transition in thinking about the city in a key location in Brussels. It’s our ambition to restore how the building is perceived and make it an urban attraction point.

The program we chose for this project is one with a local anchoring, where different forms of living and working alternate and overlap. We consciously want to offer a programming that is complementary to the traditional functions aimed at the visitor or the tourist, and takes a social responsibility. The program is a mix of functions, realized by a collaboration with different social partners: cohabs for cohousing, Silversquare for coworking, ULB for university education, research and student homes. This mix of functions will make the building an urban attraction point. The lively plinth, which integrates visibly into the city, makes a large exchange with the pedestrian area. It is designed as a covered square, an offshoot of the public space, which integrates similar functions such as meeting, exchange and relaxation.

Apartments are located at the top floors. The roof will be used by Brussels cityfarmer Love&Peas to grow vegetables for those willing to pick them.
