Wereldhave presents extension of Belle-Ile Shopping

Last week, Wereldhave posted a movie online, presenting the refurbishment and extension of Belle-Ile Shopping in Liege. VK Architects & Engineers is in charge of all engineering. The extension, designed by Ateliers d’Architecture du Sart Tilman, contains a covered mall which demanded some scrutinous research by VK’s engineers.

An integrated engineering approach, applying parametric design, resulted in an optimised design, not only high-performance but cost-effective as well, while not having to sacrifice the architectural quality.

The renewed and extended shopping center will open in September 2019. Works start mid next year.

View the movie on VK’s YouTube-channel.
