Project details

Beside embraces the identity of rue De Theux and deploys a new residential complex in the neighborhood. Located between Ixelles and Etterbeek, rue De Theux is characterized by its plot-based architecture, with facades featuring graphic elements with the use of bricks. The project reinterprets these distinctive elements and slides into the continuity of existing buildings through a progressive volumetry and a facade composed of light beige and green glazed bricks.

Articulated around 3 distinct circulation cores, the project offers 32 crossing housing units. Ranging from studios to 4-bedroom apartments, all units - with the exception of one studio - are extended by an outdoor space: a garden-side balcony to the east or a street-side loggia to the west. In addition to limiting the density of balconies on the rear facade, this diversity of typologies, outdoor spaces and exposures also helps preserve the privacy of neighbors within the block.

Half of what was an entirely paved plot will now be planted, 60% of which will be open ground. With a generous interior garden enclosed by the walls of adjacent plots, Beside offers a variety of living spaces and a precious green setting within a particularly dense urban area.
