Commercial Printing house
New construction. Eco Print Centre, Lokeren, Brussels.
Associate architect: Filip Declercq Senior Architect Principal Design ELD Partnership (Antwerp)
Contractors: Entreprise Interbuild - Loveld Carrieri - Peters (Maasmechelen)

Eco Print is a press group bringing together high tech installations.  Its facilities print newspapers and periodicals such as De Morgen, Het Laatste Nieuws, L’Echo, Dag Allemaal, Genieten …

The new Eco Print printing house is a remarkable example of its type, not only does it blend technical and economic stylishness but it also exudes a strong architectural image.

The team of architects from the ELD Partnership chose functionality in its most pure expression: "less is more".

This search for purity was translated particularly through the use of certain materials: glass, concrete, aluminium and bluestone were selected in a reflective way.

The great entrance hall in functional blue stone with clean lines immediately sets the tone.
