Are you planning to set up offices for your business in a coworking space in Brussels? That’s a great plan for so many reasons: its strategic geographic position, openness to the world, hyperdynamic market and its status as the capital of Belgium and Europe, to name but a few. The different neighbourhoods in this cosmopolitan city each have a distinct atmosphere, seducing profiles as wide-ranging as our coworking spaces themselves.
Brussels, a professional hub
Incidentally, choosing a coworking space in Brussels makes so much sense in this lively metropolis that constantly attracts entrepreneurs, industrialists, investors, financiers, lobbyists, diplomats, academics, artists, researchers and other young, talented people from all over the world.Shared workspaces
are exactly the places where you will meet them: since they may only be in Brussels for a few months, they also need perfectly equipped offices where they can do their job efficiently and welcome people to their meetings. This is a unique opportunity to exchange, share and connect that might even lead to fruitful partnerships.
A city and offices that are ideally located and easily accessible
By train and plane
No other capital city can boast such a crucial position on the map of Europe as Brussels. With air and rail links to major European cities several times a day, it is the ideal location to develop your business, meet with clients, partners and prospects or to use as a base for your own rapid and convenient trips. For example, you are only 1 hour 20 minutes from Paris and 2 hours from Amsterdam with the Thalys
, or from London by Eurostar
A diverse community of coworkers
Very varied sectors
The sectors in which Belgium – and hence Brussels – are attractive to business leaders include pharmaceuticals, textiles, agriculture and food, chemistry and biotechnology, metallurgy, aeronautics and distribution. There are also many businesses in the country that are active in the fields of banking, IT – especially software packages – consultancy and finance. With this in mind, note that Belgium’s banking and finance system is considered to be particularly dynamic and healthy, making it an ideal place to establish your business.
The capital of European lobbying
As already mentioned above, there are hordes of lobbyists in the city. That’s no surprise, because many European and international institutions have their headquarters, or at least a branch, in Brussels. Among them are NATO, the Benelux General Secretariat (administrative centre), Eurocontrol (the European organisation for the safety of air navigation), the Council of Europe, the UN, UNESCO, the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), the WHO (World Health Organisation) and the World Bank’s branch for the Benelux and the European Union.
Let’s not forget either that Brussels is home to the European Commission, the Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions, and that it accommodates the members of the European parliament three weeks out of four, as well as hosting meetings for the parliamentary committees and political groups.
Our coworking spaces in northern Brussels
There’s a reason why many big businesses and international organisations (including NATO) have chosen the area surrounding Brussels Airport in north-eastern Brussels to set up their European headquarters: from your offices at Silversquare Zaventem
, the airport is just a ten-minute car journey away!
The first airport in Belgium and second largest hub for growth is a genuine intermodal platform that brings together every mode of transport, serving 175 destinations from Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire to Zurich in Switzerland, not to mention Montreal, Beijing, Reykjavik and Washington DC.
Light and intimacy
Jane Haesen has designed a coworking space bathed in light, with huge panes of glass that allow an abundance of natural light to flood every room. Need to concentrate, make a call or hold a confidential meeting? Opt for an alcove that is as practical as it is cosy.
The coworking space Silversquare North
opens its doors in March 2022, in a neighbourhood that is undergoing a thorough revival. The Quartier Nord – Brussels’ answer to Manhattan – has long been known as a very important business hub, with its 1,200,000 m2 of offices accommodating around 40,000 people at companies such as Engie, Proximus or the Federal Public Service Finance.
But there is more than a sense of an industrious anthill that emerges from these wide, green boulevards: the commercial heart of the city is very close by, with the City2 shopping centre in particular just across the Place Rogier, along with cultural institutions such as the Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles, KVS (the Royal Flemish Theatre), La Monnaie / De Munt opera house, Le Botanique concert venue and the Kanal-Centre Pompidou museum.
Let your imagination run riot
We used to know Lous as a singer, rapper, writer and composer. Here she is in the role of an artistic interior designer. The colours, materials, shapes and decorations we find here are warm and deep. Everything is designed to inspire new ideas, awaken your creativity and spark opportunities.
A coworking space in the centre of Brussels
With this coworking space on the Rue Cantersteen
, Silversquare puts the capital city of Belgium and Europe at your feet. You can take that literally, because this splendid Art Deco building overlooks Brussels Central station, designed by Victor Horta, where your visitors from all over Belgium arrive in the city. You can see the spire of Brussels city hall on the Grand-Place, the most beautiful square in the world , the towers of the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula, Bozar arts centre and the Royal Palace. The Mont des Arts, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, the Fin-de-Siècle Museum, the Magritte Museum and Brussels Park are all just a stone’s throw away, as are the antiques shops and culinary delights of the Sablon.
You will find yourself in the historic heart of the city that hardly ever sleeps, a lively, vibrant, inspiring location that is also very attractive to your visitors with a high-quality range of hotels.
Exceptional decor and furnishings
Beauty and art are a constant presence in this space designed by the MANIERA gallery, which also brought in the interior designers Dozon (of Ghent) to come up with the general layout, Piovenefabri who created the restaurant, and the designer Christophe Hefti to whom we owe all the extremely colourful textiles, curtains and carpets that adorn the space.
