MLA+, the sister company of Maccreanor Lavington, has won an international contest for a landmark regeneration project in central Brussels
The practice, working with local firm Kortenie Stuhlmacher Architecten, was chosen ahead of rival bids by Neutelings Riedijk Architects, 3XN and Caruso St John.
The project will transform Brussels’ historic Le Sablon district which was unsympathetically redeveloped as offices during the mid-20th century.
The winning scheme will deliver five new buildings including a residential block, a ‘student hotel’, offices and a public square.
Founding partner Gerard Maccreanor commented: ‘This is a really exciting opportunity to work in such a historically sensitive neighbourhood with diversity and richness of architecture on every corner.’
