  • The project adapts itself to the triangular crossroad it is located on.

    With their ‘‘broken geometry’’, the three volumes occupy all peaks of the triangular site. The triangle center is emptied, giving permeability on the ground floor for probable public spaces and offering every apartment views on the landscape.

    All three buildings have a privileged relation with the surrounding streets. They all host commercial spaces. All apartment accesses are from the inside courtyard of the project on the superior ground floor.

    The apartment typologies are always oriented towards the view. Rooms are therefore oriented north-east/west and living rooms and loggias south.

    The construction of the project is entirely local. The façade is made out of a stone traditional cladding.

  • NOTAN OFFICE is a Brussels based architecture and urban design practice. It relies on temporary associations between Frederic Karam and other architects, landscape architects, artists, urban planners, and more technical advisors. The idea is to adapt to every project that demands different knowhows and expertise; relying on this network to reinvent itself through every collaboration, each project taken from scratch, with new inputs for each contexts in attempts to find coherent answers with given budgets, contexts and geographical locations.
