Eco-Friendly, People-Centric Design

The Espace Rolin successfully combines bold contemporary design with people-centric, state-of-the-art technology. Key features include oversized windows covered with high-yield solar protection film, a dynamic double-skin façade, and high performance acoustic insulation. As a result, occupants can enjoy the benefits of natural, ultra quiet air conditioning (cold ceiling radiation technology), plenty of window views, and maximum exposure to natural daylight.

The Espace Rolin provides nearly 19,000 m2 of modular office space (6,000 m2 + 6,000 m2 + 7,000 m2) complete with a total of 470 underground parking spaces.

The development is split over three buildings that can be used separately or grouped together to form a single ensemble.

Location & Accessibility

 Ideal Location, Easy Access

From a business point of view, Espace Rolin is surrounded by the “Arsenal” site (a recently new dynamic development made up of offices, residential, retail and services area) and the “La Plaine” site, a famous offices boulevard with a lot of impressive company names.


The building, in triangle shape, has three external façades. One facade gives view to the ‘Louis Schmidt Boulevard’, one of the most important boulevards of Brussels, giving immediate access to the center of Brussels through the well-known Montgomery roundabout. Another façade is located alongside the ‘Chaussée de Wavre’ that leads directly, in 2 kilometers, to the Schuman roundabout, where the European Commission is situated. The third façade of the building runs along a peaceful residential area. Shops and restaurants in the surroundings give the area a “village” atmosphere. The interior facades overlook a calm and serene common garden.

The access by public transport is easy too: by underground (with the “Petillon” stop located at 300m), by tram (line 7, with a stop in front of the building), by bus (lines 25 and 34 to Schuman), by train (Etterbeek station at 500 m, one stop by tram).

Without a doubt, Espace Rolin is a landmark building with an exceptional location in the Brussels urban landscape!
