374-Reception and checkpoint – Fina Research
924 sqm. (1998); (01-374).
– Cost control
– Special services
FINA wishes to move the reception of its research facility in Feluy, and reinforce the access control, by installing a checkpoint at the entrance of the site.
The existing access from the National road is situated in a green belt according to the zoning regulations. Hence, the building must be integrated in the undulating landscape. As a result, it is located between green banks, reducing the exterior views on the new construction. It is placed in the axis of the private road joining the bridge and the National road. Its oval plan splits the circulation of the vehicles entering and leaving the site.
A large awning protects the visitors stopping at the gate. It is made of bent steel tubes, bearing the laminated glass roof system.
The curved façade and roof of the lodge is made of glazed panels for the public part and aluminium for the private and technical part.
