Text description provided by the architects. The business complex building is designed as an expansion of an existing business site. A substantial green strip makes for a buffering for the village centre of Westkapelle.

The business complex building is the start for the completion of the third phase of the business site. The premise for the design was, on the one hand, to create a landmark, but on the other hand, to also create modularity and flexibility, accessibility and sustainability.

The building is given an exemplary function and will be the symbol and the beating heart of the business site.

It will be an example of architectural quality, functionality, flexibility, adaptability, user-friendliness, accessibility, comfort, spatial and material use – in brief: sustainability.

Ground Floor Plan
Ground Floor Plan

The business complex building must house an ever-changing mix of businesses. By using a logical column structure, fixed cores for circulation and mechanics, light acoustic walls and a modular façade construction, a plan has been developed that evolves with its users. Business spaces are each given a separate entrance, and if needed, access for trucks.

From a wider perspective, the business site is a link at the Natiënlaan, an important access road to Knokke from the hinterland. Along this axis, which ends at the Casino of Knokke, various functions can be found, such as the NMBS train station, golf courses and the new hospital.
