Belgian Building Awards 2020 – Cera Headquarters in the shortlist Build2Work
The Headquarter of Cera is nominated for the Awards in the category Build2Work.
“CERA bank opted for two buildings located in the historic centre of Leuven to install its head office: the neo-Gothic building known as Helleputte, with its multipurpose hall, and the 18th-century Hôtel d’Eynatten and its parlours. The two buildings have been completely refitted by archipelago and Robbrecht & Daem, in collaboration with Studio Roma, with respect for the key heritage features. As the third piece of the project, the new building on the corner adds a contemporary touch. All rooms, which are accessible from indoors and out from the stepped ground floor, form an ‘urban promenade’ in the building, linking the ancient and the modern. The facades made entirely of glass allow an abundance of natural light to enter the areas inside, with great benefit to the work environment. The interior finishes are characterised by a warm blend of solid and durable materials.”

Awards Architectes - Build2Work
“The Build2Work category recognises industrial buildings or offices completed in 2017 or later. The building aims to showcase quality architecture and an innovative approach, providing a pleasant work environment for staff and visitors. The evaluation considers both the interior and the exterior of the building. The fact that the project takes advantage of the principles of the ‘new way of working’, by focusing considerable attention on the physical and mental well-being of employees is a bonus. This category is open to both architects and interior designers.”
