Station of Laken

B-architecten, B-bis & B-city as Architects

The centre of the former railway station of Laken became the new entrance zone on the ground floor. Here we can find the socio-cultural café, the entrance hall, the multi-purpose hall with green room and cloakroom and the toilets.

A new contemporary extension at the platform side improves the flexibility of the railway station. This south oriented winter garden is a reference to the original access to the platforms. A new circulation zone vertically connects all functions of the building: exhibition halls, studios, meeting rooms, working areas, …

The façades of the former station have been carefully restored. The original structure of the building is respected to its maximum extent.
