Fosbury & sons, Antwerp, Belgium Going east, Belgium Design brief and aim: The design ideology was to introduce a new era of working while focusing on the needs of today's generation. How this was accomplished: The experience of walking the New York High Line inspired the layout of the space. The first floor welcomes one with the warmth of a living room, the services and look of a hotel. The structure is supported by concrete columns and has six-meter-high windows overlooking the landscape. Walls decorated with art, vintage furniture and customized furniture like the lamps, sofas, curtains, desks and tables forms soft and warm elements.
The use of black steel, recycled fibreglass and bricks stones in the bar and entrance desk were chosen to provide the structure with a rough outdoor look. Besides the usual amenities, the space offers members noise-cancelling headphones, showers, and the services of a laundry. How green was my project: The bar was completely built using 100 percent recycled bricks and fiberglass. Happily ever after: The architects created a professional interior hub where professional service, educational lectures and fun events raises the quality of life during and after work.
