As a very busy place in the city, the metro access of Square du Bastion to the Porte de Namur metro station has remained unfinished for a long time.
The metro's entrance was covered with an elliptical awning consisting of a peripheral frieze. The awning overflows on three fixed frame clear glass placed between the supporting structures.
Meanwhile, the frieze is made from aluminum sheeting receiving stainless steel decorations. Decorative brackets are small softened granite stone, on which aluminum chasses are fixed.
The glazing enables both natural light to enter under the awning, along with a visual transparency on the square.
Access to the metro it ensured by the completion works on the public space, which blends into the square and Bastion Tower. The coverage of Metro access makes the new infrastructure of the STIB more noticeable and enhances its value.
