Foster + Partners reveals Luxembourg office scheme

Foster + Partners has revealed designs for a proposed office building in Luxembourg

The practice, which last week won the RIBA Stirling Prize for its Bloomberg HQ office building in London, unveiled its plans for a commercial complex in Belval near the French border.

The building, for Besix Real Estate Development, has been designed to encourage collaborative working.

A light-filled central atrium forms the building’s social and environmental heart, according to the practice, and gives views of the historic Belval blast furnace.

The atrium leads to two wings and the entire envelope is wrapped by an orthogonal façade and roof designed to give the building a unified industrial look.

Fosters partner Darron Haylock said: ‘The challenge for us was to create a building that was open and flexible – responding to the contemporary patterns of work in today’s organisations – while also respecting the site’s industrial heritage.

‘Focusing on aspects that create attractive places for people to work, it offers new office spaces that promote collaboration and wellbeing.

‘The atrium is the social heart of the building. With a central spine that winds through the spaces and green terraces overlooking it at different levels, it creates an attractive and dynamic atmosphere for people to work in.’

The building edge along the Porte de France road can accommodate shops and banks while the Place de l’Académie side is complemented by cafés and restaurants on the ground floor.
