Queen Anne - Hotel and Residences, Brussels

Hotel from the glory years of 1958 extended and adapted to contemporary needs

There are three parts to the project: building a new hotel at 98-106 Emile Jacqmain boulevard, renovating the Queen Anne hotel and building a new L-shaped apartment block at 112-114-116 Emile Jacqmain boulevard.

Since the plot did not allow for creating good quality outside space in the middle of the complex, a compact and rational plan was chosen for the rooms of the new hotel. This arrangement allows for receding the façades and in this way use the public space to its full potential.

 

The programme for the new hotel includes 75 rooms and other facilities such as the lobby, the bar and the breakfast room. The ground floor, where the communal functions of the hotel are located, has an open plan and is conceived as a continuous and transparent room from Emile Jacqmain boulevard to Rue du Pélican.

 

The compact area, the high-quality thermal insulation of the outer envelope, the solar panels, the reduction of incoming sun with the help of folding screens and the technical installations that use geothermal energy and heat pumps create a sustainable and energy-efficient building in which air conditioning is no longer necessary.

 

The Queen Anne hotel was refurbished in such a way that the 1958 style was preserved and amplified. Along with the construction of the new hotel, the complex will compensate for residential buildings. There is a new desired layout for this. The residential unit is integrated into the existing urban fabric through gradually diminishing the height and providing a visual continuity with the surrounding cornices. A variety of accommodation has been created:seven one-room apartments, eight two-room apartments, one three-room apartment and six studios have been included in a coherent unit.
