BEKAERT NV Office Building Zwevegem / by BURO II & ARCHI+I – SILEGHEM & PARTNERS

BII&A+I- BekaertZwevegem-47

Context

Bekaert nv is the market leader in steel wire transformation and coatings. The new administrative building is built on a site in Zwevegem, near the Bekaert Technology Center (BTC) site. The architects have opted in favour of a campus model for the building, thus prioritizing the synergy between the new project and the BTC. The building’s implantation, the design of the surrounding area as well as the architectural approach are all conceived in function of this synergy.

The building is situated across the street pattern, partly positioned in parallel to the buffer pond corresponding with the rhythm of the buildings in the Esser industrial zone, partly connected to the ETC buildings. The result is a playful element in the design.

The Confederation of Employers of Albacete (FEDA) is a nonprofit organization representing and supporting the business network in the Region. Due to the evolution of its activities and growth of services, the organization raised the idea of bringing together in a sole building all the instalations that were scattered throughout the city of Albacete. This idea was the seed of this project.

From the beggining it became apparent that this initiative would be a milestone for Albacete, because FEDA has a high level of representation in the city, and because it offers many services to its companies. Besides, the new building aspires to endow new life to a new neighborhood which is being built between a hard industrial and services center, Campollano estate, and the city center.
