Big Bang – 3 levels vertical extension – Brussels


This four storey building dates from the beginning of the XX century.

The project aims to renovate the whole building by converting the upper floor into a living space and adding 2 new levels. This can be done by extended the building upwards and the resulting space freed up internally can be redistributed to create a mixed-use project with space for a shop or business on the ground floor and 4 levels of residential units with terrace on the rooftop. This is possible thanks to the presence of higher neighbors.

The lower part of the building remains the same and the new extensions are built in CLT (cross laminated timber) wood and coated with a mix of wood and metal.

Status of the project:
Study approved but project not realized
