Batiment WIM is a building in the heart of Brussels, Belgium with over 320,000 square-feet of office space for the European Parliament. Glass Skin with Glass Skin Doors from Line System were chosen by the European Parliament Architects because it enabled the modularity needed for constant rearrangements of space that occur in the building on a regular basis.
All Line Systems products are a modular system that come with a standard width of 108mm, the separation between the office and meeting rooms in the PA 100 opaque with magnetic panels. The combined solution allows for full rooms regardless of their location, or partition area to be unassembled and assembled in any position across the 11 floors of the building within the same day, with zero material waste and zero installation hurdle.
The European Parliament required a high acoustical rating for the office fronts and on-site tests that showed performances of 44dB Rw, which more than satified the clients needs.
