This beautiful building was built for the Soignes forest brigade, south-east of Brussels. The premises are divided into two parts: a logical part, reserved for tools and vehicles, and a functional part with offices, a refectory and changing rooms.
The building blends perfectly into its environment: the theme "wood" is found in its structure, cladding and heating system.
Concerns for well-being and health guided the design of the building. It is equipped with large bay windows. The zenithal lighting provides a significant amount of light, far above average for this type of technical room. A CO2 sensor regulation system for optimal indoor air quality is set up in the living rooms.
