Brussels – Continuing their user-centric mission to bring office environments into the 21st century, the minds behind Belgian coworking company Fosbury & Sons have opened the doors to Albert, a third Brussels post. The 5,000-sq-m interiors are designed by Antwerp-based practice Going East, which has an ongoing relationship with the brand. Last year, the studio brought a brutalist Constantin Brodzki building to life for Fosbury & Sons’ second location, a Frame Awards 2020-nominated workspace.
The posts in Brussels draw a North-South axis through the city, meaning that the company is now accessible to the majority of the metropolitan region. With the opening of Albert, the brand’s Brussels offices currently provide workspace to 1,170 people, including freelancers and employees of small and large business. According to a spokesperson, Fosbury & Sons believes this ‘local anchoring is essential’ – that it creates an organic user experience by contributing to the feeling of ‘coming home’ rather than to work.
