In December BOZAR ARCHITECTURE's NICHE series will feature new work from AgwA. In the heart of an old Brussels district, this young architectural practice has transformed and enlarged a former tyre workshop, built in the late 1950s in a modernist style.
The building, which has preserved the qualities of space and light of the period of its construction, now houses a sports hall, an after-school homework programme, and three moderate-rent apartments. This mixed development meets the requirements set out in the "neighbourhood agreement" urban-regeneration project for the Métal-Monnaie district.
In their presentation, the partners Harold Fallon and Benoît Vandenbulcke will, among other things, outline the context of the project and explain how it took shape. The model of their work will be on display, from 18 December, in the alcoves situated around the Henry Le Boeuf Hall.
