Developed by IVG Real Estate Belgium, the BT ignite headquarters is a tailor-made project to suit BT – the well known British telecommunication company – specific needs.

 he 13,255-square-metre project is comprised of three individual buildings erected above two common basement levels and linked by a glassed-covered atrium. The ground level is treated as a landscaped promenade and a large amount of space is devoted to a restaurant and a separate coffee shop.

Each wing has its own vertical circulation but it is the wing 1, the largest of all three, which is acting as the leading architectural piece with its elevator bank made of three glass-enclosed elevators as it creates a permanent animation in the atrium. At level +1 to +3, each wing is connected to the next one via aerial walkways. The project can therefore function as a series of small units or as a whole with floor plates providing up to 3,006 square metres on single level when considering the three units connected together.
