Construction of an apartment building in the heart of Brussels consisting of 7 floors in CLT.
The project for a new apartment building along the Canal in Brussels takes place on a small parcel where a garage was formerly located. The building consists of 7 floors and is situated allmost in the heart of Brussels in a dense and vivid urban context where a quick buildup was certainly appreciated. CLT seemed to be the right answer, and allowed us to finish the construction of the whole structure in just 2 weeks !
The front facade with its ten meters width is largely glazed, providing the inner space with a spectacular view. The load of the floors and facade is carried down via two collaborating glulam beams functioning as lintel and sill towards the central column and lateral CLT walls, and thus maximizing the view from inside.
