Designer: Philippe Gazeau Architecte

BRIO is installed on a triangular piece. The character of a small island with three sides imposes a strong treatment of the three angles resulting from the particular geometry of the ground. The undulation of the facade gives the project a singular silhouette which makes it difficult to read the true scale of the joint buildings, whereas its soft and fluid forms attract and accommodate the visitor. This specific geometrical configuration of the volumetry of the hollow inflection of the facades cause an obvious development of the three angles of the new building. This volumetric work associates the urban ambitions of the project with the objectives of environmental performance. The contribution of a maximum of natural light is obtained by the form of the plan which optimizes the interior distribution, so all the working rooms profit from the natural light. The form of the plan improves the energy performances.

Antwerp-Simonshttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Belgium/Brussels/Antwerp-SimonsBrussels, Belgium
Designer: A2M Bureau d'architecture
Contributed by: A2M

This project, located in a very dense neighbourhood, consists of a school, 51 apartments, a building for the ONE (birth and childhood office) and a childcare facility. The project covers an entire building block, with new constructions and an existing building. Besides that, the building cooperates in the urban context as well, making the public services more visible and enhancing the multiplicity of building blocks in the direct environment. The new additions close the block, providing more clarity in the urban tissue. To prevent the block from closing itself off, the openings in the facade were carefully designed. The building block encloses two courtyards, one of them with particular use for the school. The different materials of the facade point out the different functions of what is behind.

Station Hofplein - Phase 2http://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Rotterdam/Station%20Hofplein%20-%20Phase%202Rotterdam, Netherlands
Designer: PEÑA architecture
Contributed by: PENAarchitecture

The success of the first phase of Station Hofplein (the MINI MALL, check project phase 1), was put into the next phase of redevelopment. This phase consisted of waterproofing the roof, restoring the facade, in consultation with National Cultural Heritage and restoring the recessed wooden window frames and ornamentation. The entrepreneurs were given the opportunity to install the necessary climate installations themselves. A great asset for the Hofplein Station was the connection to the Luchtsingel, the bridge that connects the station with Pompenburg and Central Station. The Hofplein Station has become gathering of special companies in the areas of food, fashion, film and design.

Station Hofplein - Phase 1http://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Rotterdam/Station%20Hofplein%20-%20Phase%201Rotterdam, Netherlands
Designer: PEÑA architecture
Contributed by: PENAarchitecture

The Hofplein station was the terminal station of the 28.5 km long Hofpleinlijn (Hofplein Railway), which ran from Scheveningen (The Hague) to Rotterdam and was constructed in the early 1900s. The 2 kms of the track running through the city of Rotterdam were built as an elevated railway, a viaduct of 189 reinforced concrete arches. Never before, such a long and grand structure had been built with this material. Therefore the arches were declared a national monument in 2002. In Phase 1, the seven arches of the Hofplein Station were reused as a Mini Mall, a gathering of unusual shops, restaurants, hotels and event spaces. All to create a healthy and vibrant mix of creativity and commercialism. The last train departed from the Hofplein Station in August, 2010, after which the 4000 m2 roof of the building was used as an urban platform. Phase 1 was not only a redesign of the station, but a business model just as well.

Van Nelle factoryhttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Netherlands/Rotterdam/Van%20Nelle%20factoryRotterdam, Netherlands
Designer: J.A. Brinkman
Contributed by: Naomi

The Van Nelle Factory is an imposing building of inestimable cultural and historical value, having the status of a nationally protected monument and being included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. From the outside the building is monumental, but inside it is innovative and modern. It was designed around the concepts of light, air and space, inspired by the 'new building' philosophy of the past. The transparent architecture and the abundant windows turn the building into a work of art. The tea-room on the roof and the diagonal overhead walkways are characteristic elements. For many years these buildings were factories producing coffee, tea and tobacco. In the mid 1990s the factories were closed, and renovation work started in 1998. Nowadays they house inspiring offices and business workspaces for the creative sector, hence its modern name: Design Factory. They also offer an attractive location for events, conferences, seminars, movie and theatre productions and photo-shoots.

The Spinning Millshttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Denmark/Vejle/The%20Spinning%20MillsVejle, Denmark
Designer: schmidt hammer lassen architects
Contributed by: schmidt_hammer_lassen_architects

The Spinning Mills (Danish: Spinderihallerne) in Vejle is one of a few original and unspoiled industrial building complexes that has preserved its original structure and unique industrial expression. It has been pivotal for the regeneration that both the exterior and the interior of the building continue to tell the history of the industrialisation of Vejle, while meeting the requirements of the new functions. The regeneration project's design aims to preserve the cultural value of the Spinning Mills whilst introducing a contemporary feel to the buildings and the surrounding area. The historic mills, which were built in 1896 and rebuilt in 1925 after a fire destroyed the original structures in 1924, reflect the industrial heritage of Vejle, an old industrial town well known for its cotton industry. The renovation of the Spinning Mills is today the setting of a popular, cultural meeting place, where artists and creative businesses unfold along with a museum and a theatre.

Contributed by: pkrajewski_pl

Opened in April 2012, the Maritime Culture Centre (MCC) is the newest department of the National Maritime Museum. It is also one of the most modern museums in Poland and is the only museum which promotes information on maritime subject in a comprehensive and interactive way by employing multimedia techniques. Despite its modern architecture which draws attention by its partially glass walls and roof, the building alludes to the historic architecture of Gdansk. The Centre's great asset is its location on the riverbank of the Motlawa River, along the most popular sightseeing tours of the Old Town. The main attraction of MCC is a permanent interactive room "People-Ships-Ports". A huge water tank with remote-controlled models of ships and yachts is its most eye-catching part. Visitors of the Centre can also participate in a sailing regatta in order to learn how to trim the sails or to perform delicate manoeuvres on water with the use of tugs.
