Energy & Temperate Climates winner of the #GBCSAwards 2016: CoRI

«Paint it Green» is a renovation-extension of buildings composed of offices and laboratories of the CoRI (Coating Research Institute), located in Limelette, in Belgium. The project had to achieve two goals: to increase workspace and to contribute to the modernisation of CoRI’s image. The contractor also wanted the buiding to be a statement of CoRI’s social and environmental commitment.

The project is based on a concept called «colour chart» by the architect, to modernize the image of the building and illustrate CoRi’s research activity in paint technologies. But beyond the esthetics, the team of designers looked to  transcend the high-tech/sustainability opposition by putting the technology at the service of ecology.

«Paint it Green» is an efficient, smart, didactic and comfortable tertiary building, that combines smart technologies, renewable energies and healthy materials: wood, cellulose wadding and low VOC paints.

  • Contractor : CoRI (Coating Research Institute)
