Construction of a building of 49 social housing for students
The project is a new construction project of
49 social housing units for students (the first building
of social kots in Belgium), on the place des Paniers in Louvain-La-Neuve.
The project is part of the pedestrian context of Louvain-La-Neuve. It is located at the end of Place des Paniers on a very narrow plot bordering the access to the city's underground car park. The building slips into this plot to form the fourth missing facade of the square. The redents of the site are intended to preserve the existing pedestrian walkways and the sunshine of the neighbouring buildings. This new building acts like a puzzle piece that fills a void and stitches up pending elements.
