Brigade, passive building integrated into the forest, Belgium - Green Solutions Awards 2019 winner
In this "Health & Comfort" category, we have, for the first time of the Green Solutions Awards history, 2 winners! Since both projects were really appreciated by the jury, one for its human approach, the other for its technical approach. With no further due, let’s present the first winner so you can understand why it was impossible to designate a single one!
The Brigade project is a passive technical building for forest rangers in the Soignes forest in Belgium. It is integrated into the forest environment, which directly inspires well-being and work activity.
Light inputs have been carefully managed, while interactions with the outside world are encouraged, particularly thanks to the view on the clearing. It is a simple project, which respects both its immediate environment and the people who come to work there. A preliminary study of the impact of building materials on indoor air quality was carried out.
