We’ve been around for a while now, 15 years to be precise, and we felt it was time for a change! We’ve built up a portfolio of exciting and challenging projects together with our talented, engaged and creative team that has also grown steadily. As we continue to evolve as a company our values and commitment to our work and areas of expertise remain the same – bringing sustainable, resourceful and integrated solutions to the built environment around us.

A big thank you to Leuven-based design agency Kpot, who were an absolute delight to work with.

Mol is a fast growing municipality and a lot of urban development initiatives will be taking place in the coming years. The municipality felt the need to attract a team to guarantee a good coordination between the different developments and to ensure they all contribute to the realization of a shared ambition. The team led by BRUT, with Spatie maakt ruimte as planning expert, Atelier Romain as landscape architect and Suunta as mobility expert, was selected to do this. We are looking forward to getting to know this beautiful municipality and its inhabitants better in the coming years.

The structural works on the new police station are in full swing. The design is shaped by the rich context of the building with a beautiful rural landscape with a lake on one side and the large scale buildings along the national road N60 on the other. The building will become a landmark in the landscape.

Landmark in the Landscape

Now that the public part of the project, with the library, the administrative centre, the sports hall and the schools, is put into use, the new town centre is slowly coming to life. The residential buildings have also already advanced quite a bit and the refurbishment of the green public spaces and parks will eventually be the cherry on the cake. To be continued…
