Today, the Belgian financial newspaper De Tijd published a full-page story on the cepezed-designed, new headquarters of Brussels Environment, the governmental authority in the field of nature and ecology of the Brussels Metropolitan District. The newspaper calls the building a showpiece for the elections of environmental secretary Evelyne Huytenbroeck and reports that in popular speech, it already has the nickname 'the toaster'. The article extensively discusses the sustainability of the second-largest passive building in Europe, which supports the goals of the organization in four important domains: it is a model for sustainable construction projects, it is a building in which the staff can work with optimal flexibility, efficiency and comfort, it is a building in which Leefmilieu Brussel can also actively involve and educate the general public regarding environmental issues and it is a building which contributes to the sustainable redevelopment of an entire area, the Tour & Taxis-grounds of which it is part.
On the internet, the publication is only avilably for digital subscribers. However, De Tijd also released a videoreport here which can be viewed by all
