Whole new Saint-Luc Hospital on the way

15:34 24/01/2018

The Saint-Luc University Hospital in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert has released plans for a whole new campus, which will be built next to its current building. The new hospital will include a psychiatric institution and cancer clinic.

The most striking aspects of the new design are the extreme use of glass and multiple levels – a stark contrast to the current concrete block design, built in the 1970s. The new campus was designed by Brussels firm VK Architects in collaboration with the Paris-based Michel Rémon & Associés.

The old hospital building will also be renovated and used for offices and other functions. The entire project should be completed by 2025, the year Saint-Luc turns 50. The hospital is part of the Catholic University of Louvain.
