Discover Molenbeek through its Sustainable Buildings ( Open Guided Tour)
Building in harmony with the environment is essential. Many innovative solutions are available and could be used today without being much more expensive than traditional construction.
That is why the municipality of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean has resolutely opted to make all new buildings meet passive standards. In addition to this excellent energy performance, the town is oriented towards more sustainable solutions, such as the use of green building materials, solutions which improve biodiversity areas which reinforce social bonds, and the use of renewable energy.
This choice to be exemplary in the use of energy and environmentally friendly materials does not neglect the architectural quality of the buildings and their integration into the public space.
Many of the buildings that you will discover during these two discovery tours come from neighbourhood revitalisation programmes. These buildings give a new face to the municipality while responding to the specific needs of the districts.
