Conversion of the former Marivaux cinema (6,800 m²) in Brussels city centre into a residence consisting of 135 housing units for students and young professionals, underground parking for 23 cars and 88 bicycles.
The listed façade and structural elements are being restored as well as the cinema operating facilities which are converted into spaces housing part of the accommodation, the reception and common areas of the residence and a conference room. The main volume of the cinema auditoriums is being demolished to make way for a new building which includes the majority of the accommodation, a gym and study rooms.
Finally, the centre of the block, fully occupied by the building, is being replaced by a 400 m² inner garden.
