2o13, Bruxelles, 35.ooo sqm
– PassifHaus Design Leader for Jean Paul Viguier
This unique site ideally located in the heart of the capital of Europe for Brussels, for its local, national and international tourism development. Today, the priority issue is to create a new neighborhood to encourage new dynamics by combining all the existing economic pillars, to ecologically build accessible housing and to offer a new destination for tourism, leisure and recreation. Europea is a new piece of the city, unique in its programming and exemplary in its conception. A valuable landscape and intergenerational place will offer an exceptional quality of life to the people of Brussels. Its world-class cultural, commercial and leisure program, that is so far unprecedented in Brussels. Within the realm of creation of the landscape, Europea’s architectural bias is to create a residential park and public spaces on more than 3 hectares above all commercial and leisure activities, thus offering the new district an exceptional interface. The inhabited hill is imagined like a real urban park on which the buildings of houses and hosts gardens, rest areas, games for children, animations of water align themselves parallel.
