The Place de la Reine and the Maison des Arts stand side by side without meeting. The student pole project will be the kneecap of these two spaces, a transitional moment between a very mineral square and the green space of the Maison des Arts. Similarly, the flexibility of the opening and closing of the interior street is easily controlled at the two front and rear access doors without altering the circulation of students, the coworking zone or the event space’s potential users at late hours. Particular attention will be paid to this inclusive passage whose accessibility is made comfortable for all with these gentle slopes that naturally connect these two attractive poles.
This interstitial and landscaped walk will accompany visitors through the building.
An artistic intervention takes place in this interior street and tends to reflect the history of the place.
A visual relationship is established between the two spaces through this new open perspective and its generous ceiling height. The planting of the passageway and the square and the garden of house 14 constitute a landscaped path that allows the percolation of green spaces. The presence of vegetation within the project thus deploys a real landscape sequence, accompanying the visitor from the square, through the greened passage to the
garden.
The covered street is articulated like a backbone activated on both sides by the functions functions of the student center. The neighborhood counter feeds the contact with the street. On the garden side,
the kitchen enlivens the garden and accompanies the route to and from the Maison des Arts. These programs placed at both ends of the interior alley incense activity and social control naturally throughout the day. The positioning of the kitchen is even more ideal in the event of
The positioning of the kitchen is even more ideal in the event of a mutualisation with the kitchen of the Maison des Arts.
This place can be defined as hybrid, both urban and domestic. Free of any programmatic constraints, this place will be conducive to the birth of informal exchanges and meetings.

Transformation of M.I.F – Maison des Initatives de Forest

Description: Competition
Type of project: Competition
Type of customer: Public
Department: Competition
Location: Forest, Brussels 
Surface area: 1200 m²
Year: 2021

The project, innovative, exemplary and sustainable in its materialisation, presents a flexible and modular structure to allow for great resilience and to adapt the programming according to changing needs. The preservation of the built context, the dialogue with the Wiels surroundings as well as the integration in the morphology of the existing templates promote coherence with regard to the lace formed by the division of solids and voids of the façade templates of the block concerned.

The location and visibility of the Maison des Initiatives is of paramount importance and is a challenge for the revitalisation of the Wiels district. It is a question of making this crossroads a place of passage but also a place of destination, inserting the project into a coherent public space, favouring soft mobility and qualifying the public spaces, making the direct surroundings of the crossroads permeable and green.

The project provides for a real forecourt that participates in the appropriation of the public space, its greening and thus offers welcoming outdoor spaces.

The conservation of part of the endemic vegetation will be the starting point for the composition of the garden.

The valorization of various elements of demolition that can be recovered is done by a preliminary inventory, which translates one of our central desires which is to preserve a maximum of the structures and elements of decoration and to emphasize the existing heritage.
