Mobility hub close to Antwerpsepoort in Mechelen with ambience and event potential
archipelago was commissioned by Kairos and MONT-REAL together with POLO architects, Vogt Landscape architects, 3E, Sweco, B.A.S and ARA to design a multifunctional, iconic and virtually energy-neutral building at the Keerdok and Eandis site.
The project is an essential link in the further promotion of sustainable mobility and infrastructure to ensure a liveable city of Mechelen.
The expressive construction features a publicly accessible green rooftop garden and, on a lower level, an event square with views of the historic city centre.
The building was designed from a contextual and future-oriented perspective to ensure it will be flexible, multipurpose, partly circular and flexible should the need arise in future to assign the various floors a different function. This approach also fully anticipates the foreseeable automobility developments of the future. This landmark will initially house offices, a neighbourhood shop and parking for 537 cars and 110 bicycles.
