First, we’ll have a chat about your requirements, followed by a site meeting and design consultation where necessary with one of our qualified designers or architects. Next, we’ll give you a design proposal and quotation for a standard or bespoke Ecospace® with any required options.
Once you’re completely happy with the proposal, the order will be placed and we’ll start the manufacturing drawings. We can take care of planning applications should they be required. Following approval the light ground preparation is carried out and services taken to the site.
Next, we deliver your Ecospace building in sections and skilled craftsmen erect your Ecospace building in a matter of days. The whole process takes approximately 15 weeks depending on the need for planning permission. And then it’s the exciting part – being free to enjoy your Ecospace building.
The Ecospace® concept was developed nearly 15 years ago by our UK partners in response to the environmental, economic and space issues we face today. The approach was to create a high quality sustainable building at a fixed cost and short delivery period by combining design and off-site construction. Our philosophy is to provide a flexible modular building that could be simply tailored, reconfigured or extended and applied to a diverse range of uses and building types.
The first prototype was tested in 2002, and since then many Ecospace projects have been completed. We focus on creating architectural solutions that not only respond sensitively to the site and the environment, but also to our client’s requirements.
But what about the future? Well, we’re constantly thinking up new and innovative ideas and we won’t stop until we’ve developed the next generation of Ecospace structures. Because as architects, we’re perfectionists too. Naturally.
Ecospace® is managed by architects who also run Art48 Architure&Design – a Brussels based architectural practice.
Our office is led by partners Celeste Finez and Yannick Zeegers. These past years have allowed us to consolidate our office with a new aesthetic to face new challenges, based on our rich and shared professional experiences.
We also received the laureate BATEX of the city of Brussels for the construction of passive 10 apartment building, Leclercq.
We work closely whit a team of experience craftsmen, maintaining absolute control over the entire process to ensure our exacting standards are always met. As professionals, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
