EUROSTATION BRUXELLES MIDI / BÂTIMENTS FONSNY
Ateliers Jean Nouvel has unveiled the preliminary design for the midi station renovation project located in Brussels, Belgium.
The proposed buildings will transform the existing Brussels railway station into a symbolic destination in the capital city of both Belgium and the European Union. The distinctive v-shaped silhouette emerges from the elongated base generating a prominent urban landmark.
A 550 meter long facade comprised of retail, offices and a conference center will border the Avenue Fonsny at ground level. The exterior will be clad with orange-hued panels.
The extensive glass curtain wall will envelope the angled facades reflecting the lively and continuous train activity into the surrounding landscape creating a dynamic urban mirror.
