Grand Café Capital

Antwerp - 2019

In Antwerp city park BULK Architects designed a pavilion to house both the Grand Café Capital and the city’s parks and gardens department. The round building’s clear-cut yet discreet architecture sits beautifully in this historic landscaped park.

The aim was to have the green frame around the building flow seamlessly into this monumental park. The original vegetation had been severely neglected, so we spruced things up with a variety of plants providing different layers and levels. In a couple of years the pavilion will look as if it’s floating in a sea of green.
