Cityzen is a large mixed-use redevelopment of the existing Centre Monnaie, situated in the historic heart of Brussels, Belgium. Our adaptive transformation design proposal, Papillon, includes a mix of functions— dwellings, workplaces, a hotel and an apartment hotel— combined in a tightly choreographed unity that provides a clear and powerful visual identity on the city skyline. By embracing the existing building and enhancing its inherent qualities and potential, we bring it to new heights, finding the perfect blend of today and tomorrow. Cityzen will become a destination for living, working, and playing, creating a green, sustainable landmark for the 21st century.
