BRONKS architecture

In the heart of Brussels' Dansaert district you will find the BRONKS building. Its distinctive glass façade, slightly hidden behind a singular tree, nestled perfectly into the remaining space between the established values of the Varkensmarkt in 2009. Due to the glasswork, the surroundings are both invited and reflected.

The building's reception area is deeply rooted in the Varkensmarkt, whereas the BRONKS café looms just above the square. In between, the theatre auditorium and the rehearsal rooms make up the core of BRONKS. Although the design is sleek, there are plenty of playful elements to be found; such as rotating mirror walls, a spectacular roof structure, surprising amounts of light and multifunctional spaces that communicate with each other as well as with the outside world.

In 2011, the design by architecture firm MDMA was a finalist for the prestigious Mies van der Rohe Prize. A year later, it was nominated for the World Architecture Festival Award Singapore within the 'Culture' category.
