The Hotelschool at Brusselselaan counts 6 stories and was designed by Lucas & Niemeyer in the 1960’s. Construction works for a sustainable renovation include a thorough adaptation of the building to contemporary education concepts by facilitating more work and study-places and introducing new installations concepts.
Analysis of the complex reveals an articulate building structure with many opportunities to interconnect floors, transform the semi-basement into an attractive meeting hub and to make a self-evident transition from the original high rise to the lower building wings, added in the 1990’s.
To unlock this potential and create a connected community, the main entrance was moved to a new construction. The intervention also activates a welcoming school yard and provides the Hotelschool with a generous lobby to do justice to its character.
Renovation is due to be completed in the summer of 2021.
