Constantin Brodzki’s uniquely designed Brussels concrete office building is being mildly reconstructed into a new Fosbury & Sons coworking space by design studio Going East.
Fosbury & Sons has taken over 7,000 square meters of the Brodzki building.
The building, once home to a cement company, is covered in over 750 oval windows, with the interior feeling more like home rather than an office.
“The character of the [Brodzki] building, its history, its exceptional architecture, the spirit of the age in which it was built… it just fit,” said Stijn Geeraets, cofounder of Fosbury & Sons. “We wanted to respect what was still there but also set out a new layout for Fosbury & Sons. Now you have more the Japanese/James Bond vibe and before it was more modernist.”
This isn’t the first time the coworking operator has reached about to Going East, where the studio worked on a similar project in Antwerp’s WATT Tower.
