In 2018 we were commissioned to take care of the interior design of a pharaonic project, the Liège institution, formerly the Hôtel des Postes: La Grand Poste. The epicenter of a sparkling creative hub, this place is a preserved and modernized setting that promises exciting Liège and international initiatives. Space is divided into several poles. In its center, there is a coworking space.
The central hall is open and welcoming, the large restored glass roofs bathe the place in warm light. We have designed removable benches that allow the space to be structured, and to go from reception area to conference area.
Dedicated offices offer private spaces to companies
The Coworking space is a so-called Flexzone space which offers various work possibilities: shared tables, “dedicated” offices that companies and professionals can reserve, isolated from the rest of the open-space by curtains. , mini meeting rooms or phone booths in ultra-modern and comfortable padded cabins.
We have opted for contemporary furniture as well as a sober and refined decoration in this building steeped in history. Everything is repainted in white, a natural and textured wood with a caramel hue was chosen for the custom furniture. Several areas stand out, all in pastel shades of pinks, blues, greens and yellows. These soft shades are not chosen by chance: they do not attack users, and have a timeless character.
The glass roof bathes the place in light, and responds to the soft and neat materials of the furniture
A design mixing archival images of the building and a contemporary visual treatment was imagined to decorate the central space and certain offices. Sobriety, modernity and a few colorful touches are the main axes of our bias for this development.
