“Architectue is really about well-beind. I think that people want to fell good in a space . On the one hane it’s about sheleter, but it’s also about pleasure and people enjoying their space. “

Remodeling of COMEOS office (Belgian Trade Register)

The concept was dictated by an ecological redesign  by favouring pleasant and bright working spaces. The plant façade trapping up the building and a the new garden are the spirit of the project. The meeting rooms and customer areas are convivial, cosy and functional. Wood is at the center of the project. Alcoves allow to divide spaces and offer more intimacy for the staff. The materials, fabrics and furnitures are chosen in an eco friendly manner.
