Le Toison d'Or
Le Toison d’Or
Nestled between two historic gates, Porte de Namur and Place Louise, Le Toison d’Or is a contemporary reinterpretation of the Art Nouveau Style that stands out and creates a sophisticated atmosphere in Brussels. Devised as a hybridization of a traditional building block typology and a mixed use development with podium, it simultaneously merges a retail and residential program. The design is elegant with a unique facade — visually fragmented through variations in texture, depth and rhythm, and organic forms of the V-shaped portals which represent the link between the lower retail levels and the residential levels above. It has also been developed with high standards of sustainability — thermic isolation for the facade, and a high standard of acoustic insulation for both the apartments and the retail units.
