In the Marolles district, the Pierre d’Angle emergency homeless shelter has the opportunity  to expand and diversify its shelter for women, families and persons with reduced mobility. In order to provide quality support to the homeless, the 72 beds will be complemented by a space for isolated individuals and families, socialising areas and spaces for partners in the emergency homeless shelter sector to promote synergies.

The centre is currently located in an outdated building at rue Terre Neuve that no longer meets current standards and will be extended to a second building in the same block. Since the centre’s activities form spatially continuity, the two buildings should be connected. To this end, the Pierre d’Angle ASBL, supported by the Common Community Commission (CoCoM), is looking for a project designer to renovate the building at rue Terre Neuve, to renovate the second building (currently used as a warehouse) and to connect these two buildings through their courtyards.

Grants awarded by the CoCoM at this stage are very limited, but given the program, the project is of very high relevance at a time like now.
