Community Centre Het Huys

In May 2018 the new Community Centre Het Huys and local service centre Lotus opened the doors of their brand new infrastructure. With this building, the Flemish Community Commission hopes to create a new cultural meeting place in Brussels. The design of the building was focused on the multifunctional character of the centre. The spaces were designed to be easily adaptable to a variety of functions. From fun activities in small groups to concerts and performances for a large audience. In the spacious foyer, with its central bar, the choice was made for a ceiling application in steel pressed gratings.

In the spacious foyer, with its central bar, the choice was made for a ceiling application in steel pressed gratings. Commissioned by Hans Heirman, more than 260 m² of hot-dip galvanised pressed gratings type RR 50-2 mesh 50x50 were manufactured. In order to fix these to the ceiling with hook brackets, all gratings were equipped with welded-in plates. Due to the presence of cabling and lighting elements, each grating was individually customised, including the necessary cut-outs and welding. 

Thanks to the play of colours in the lighting, this open-grid ceiling creates a very intimate atmosphere in the evening that perfectly matches the cultural and social aspect. A fine example of how steel gratings can provide a different atmosphere dimension.
