KAOS Architects have won the design competition for the reception area and extension of the Permanent Representation of Estonia to the European Union in Brussels, Belgium, at Rue Guimard 11/13. The new section will be situated in the inner courtyard and accommodate conference and reception areas.
The existing courtyard is blocked by walls. As a result of the new solution, anyone in the courtyard will be fully surrounded by the newly designed aesthetic environment: the view from the barbecue house will include the conference section and the view from the conference section will include the new handsome barbecue house.
The new architectural solution is combined into a whole by its graduality: there will be an emergency exit path from the roof of the extension into the courtyard, and the steps can also be used for sitting.
The architectural and interior architectural solutions were authored by Margit Argus, Margit Aule, Katrin Vilba and Siim Karro.
