CEFIC [The European Chemical Industry Council]

CAPTIF bvba as Architects

CAPTIF was tasked with the office design for lobbyist CEFIC located in Brussels, Belgium. It’s former private office structure has reoriented to implement a new open, yet intimate work environment at the lobbyist organization's Brussels location.


In the new, prestigious Belliard 40-building, for CEFIC we finished our most important assignment yet. The design and finish of their new office fitout on the 5 top floors confirms CEFIC’s number 1 role within the European associations. A pronounced program of requirements was implemented in consultation with the many member associations in a hybrid design & build model.


From a corporate culture with many closed offices, the switch was made to a more open, yet intimate working environment in which activity-based working is clearly promoted. To this end, we developed a bespoke 2-person concentration bubble and breakouts on each floor. There is also an important role for the cafeteria, which serves as an informal meeting place for a whole day, with a barista.


A top-notch meeting center was installed on the 13th top floor, including a state-of-the-art boardroom for 40 people. The HVAC was completely rebuilt to guarantee meetings in all comfort. The obligatory fire corridor on every floor became an opportunity: fire-resistant glass stands for transparency, a value considered highly by the customer. And thus an open plan office becomes a less intimidating place to work.
