Dominican monastery Fra Angelico at Louvain-La-Neuve

Construction of the new Dominican monastery at Louvain-La-Neuve. The 3-storey building houses some 15 individual rooms, along with communal spaces and meeting rooms. The ground floor chapel is a work of art in itself, integrated into the building through the use of metal struts protruding from the roof.

The chapel's frame is made of glulam ribs covered by specially insulated polycarbonate panels. The basement car park offers space for 10 cars.
