The new headquarters of TUI Belgium is noticeably different from conventional structures at and around airports. Fresh, vibrant design reflects the spirit and image of the young company, in an unconventional location.
TUI Belgium and Jetair are rapidly growing, dynamic companies. As rather new players on the market, they have to attract attention amid the large, established companies. The HQ plays an important role in this filed - it is a reflection of the company and a remarkable form of advertisements. Particularly the wing-shaped roof structure, with its color-shifting coating catches the eye.
The project combines a number of important demands of the client. TUI and Jetair have grown so much in a short period of time that both the fleet and the airplanes in it have increased in size. The new hangar had to be spacious enough to accommodate sufficient aircrafts. It was also a opportunity to bring the other TUI services in one location, so everything would be housed in one building with a strong presence and sufficient internal contact between the various services. The building also meets the strictest of sustainability criteria.
