Projecto Magazine “La Barcarolle Resthome in Stembert”
Publication in the September issue of Projecto Magazine about Healthcare projects of ALTIPLAN° and Creative Architecture’s project “La Barcarolle” in Stembert.
End of works planned for this autumn.
The project features 13 2-room apartments and one 3-room apartment on nine floors. The two top floors are somewhat set back at the front and back of the building, thereby making the building seem less high.
The design of the facades on the first 7 floors differs from that of the top 2 floors. It features pre-cast white concrete blocks seemingly placed randomly, whereby each narrow-width block separates one bay window from the next, acting as a sun shield. Each apartment has a sunny balcony with a glass balustrade and a splendid view of the Meuse and the Outremeuse neighbourhood thanks to the full-length bay windows.
The top 2 floors differ in volume. The building is clad in white metal, whereby the apartments have large terraces clad in exotic wood.
The facade will incorporate discrete LED lighting, switched on in the evenings.
The rear facade and the gable are covered by white rendering.
There will be 15 parking spaces and 1 disabled parking space at the rear. Particular attention has been paid to the landscaping with a view to giving the complex a green touch: the parking spaces are made of a reinforced grass paving system, while the roadways are of self-draining concrete. A tree and numerous shrubs will be planted. The surfaces between the car park and the site’s boundaries will be lawn.
The Voka Realty Club visited the Astro Tower construction site
The members of the Voka Realty Club had the opportunity to visit the Astro Tower site, which is currently undergoing an in-depth renovation. In autumn, it is more than 1.100 employees from Actiris, VDAB Bruxelles and Bruxelles Formation who will move in the office tower, close by to the « place Madou ». The Astro Tower is a showcase for Brussels, partly due to its innovative renovation which makes it one of the first passive towers in Europe. With its 107 meter high and 33 floors, the Astro Tower is the fifth tallest building in Brussels.
