Fosbury & Sons bring Brazilian modernism to Brussels’ coworking scene

Dark bamboo, plants and timber surfaces offset concrete

Belgian coworking pioneers Fosbury & Sons has drawn on tropical brutalism for its latest space in the Belgian capital at Albert II-laan.

The 5,000 sq m Brussels coworking space takes over a run-down office building in the city’s business district that has been overhauled by ASSAR architects.

Studio Going East (which previously collaborated on Fosbury & Sons’ other Brussels coworking spaces) crafted its interiors, which are rich with dark bamboo and timber surfaces and verdant plants which borrow from Brazilian modernism. Concrete pillars and walls have been left raw, adding a brutalist touch, and a black steel and timber spiral staircase connect the hotel lobby-style living room to the desk spaces above.

Black, slatted ceilings continue the colour theme, while furniture across the Brussels coworking space has a modernist bent, with sofas and booths upholstered in calming, soft green shades.
