OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen release official images of the new brewery for Brussels Beer Project
The new brewery for Brussels Beer Project (BBP) is located along the Brussels canal within the rapidly redeveloping industrial zone of Port Sud. The building houses the complete beer production process, but is also open to the public. It is conceived as a compact and efficient industrial container, a rectangular box with an inclined roof that reveals its content and expresses the company’s graphic identity, in the form of stripes in the characteristic colours of BBP beer labels.
The section of varying height accommodates a highly compact multi-level arrangement of the brewing machinery and vats in a series of table-like platforms connected with stairs. Akin to large pieces of furniture, these elements populate the space and are visible through the large greenhouse facade. The open plan enables a flexible organisation that can be altered as the technological requirements evolve.
