Renault wished to refurbish its Brussels factory, along with Foster’s Swindon project in Great Britain and Vasconi’s project in Boulogne Billancourt.
SAMYN and PARTNERS’ competition winning entry reuses the existing building structure and takes advantage of a 4 m wide zone, that is currently unused, along the façade and on each of the three levels of this multi level “factory”.
Such zone safely reorganise all pedestrian traffic in the factory, and offers a greenhouse to improve an otherwise uninviting industrial environment.
