Among the 3 areas selected by the Brussels Region to benefit from a sustainable neighbourhood contract is the Petite Suisse neighbourhood in Ixelles. Freshly integrated into the ZRU 2020, this area will benefit, for the first time, from the impact of urban revitalisation.

The Petite Suisse area is surrounded by major arteries: Avenue Adolphe Buyl, Avenue Arnaud Fraiteur, Avenue de la Couronne and Boulevard Général Jacques. These large urban boundaries divide the area within them, making it difficult to get around and communicate with the surrounding area. Having not been the subject of any urban regeneration programme, the neighbourhood suffers from a lack of accessible and functioning public infrastructure that meets the needs of the diverse public that lives there. Efforts will be focused on the creation of housing, mobility, facilities and green spaces and the strengthening of the presence of social actors. The aim is to create more cohesion between the different profiles of the residents of the neighbourhood who cohabit rather than live together.

The municipality of Ixelles is therefore looking for teams to draw up the basic programme and the environmental impact report within the deadlines and in accordance with the procedures specified in the legislation of 6 October 2016.


  • Architect – Urban planner
  • Experience in programming
  • Experience in participation
  • Skills to carry out the environmental impact report


  • Quality of the vision statement for the neighbourhood 35%
  • Quality of the methodology note 50%
  • Ability to summarise the operations and actions of the programme 15%


  • The fees are fixed at € 102.644,63 excl. VAT (programme and RIE)


  • For this mission, expenses of €1,500 will be awarded to each team invited to tender that submits a regular bid but is not finally selected.

If you are interested in this bid, we invite you to send an e-mail before 14.09.2022 at noon to the master architect team at appel-oproep@bma.brussels demonstrating your interest, motivation and experience, and giving your contact details and/or those of the planned team (on a maximum of one attached A4 sheet).
