An exciting & contemporary restaurant
The Zenith Tower is located in the North Station neighbourhood of Brussels.
An area that gathers a variety of urban experiences and architectural environments such as the country’s financial center
and a modest residential area, with its graffitis spread out in the streets.
Ezplanade is an office building restaurant situated on the ground floor, benefiting from extraordinary proportions (6 and 11 meter high ceilings, as well as a glass facade), a generous surface of 800 sqm of naked structural elements and open views on a park, inviting itself to enter the building.
Sodexo chose ncbham to create an exciting and contemporary restaurant.
For this project, the studio reflected on the urban life of the neighbourhood: an eclectic combination of raw materials, nature, street art, fragmented origami-like wall covering, reflecting the interior and exterior reality, the omnipresent concrete finish and reused materials.
The tree, placed in the heart of the project, articulates the relation with the outer space and symbolises a form of urban nature.The acoustics have been embedded in the design process from the start and are expressed in the large cylindrical lighting fixtures with acoustical absorbent finish.
The multiple sitting typologies and atmospheres within the restaurant create distinctive eating experiences and underline the variety of urban experiences.
