Peuple Belge大楼与诸多标志性的建筑隔街相望，其中包括17世纪的伯爵夫人慈善医院，以及由Marcel Spender和Jean Willerval于1970年代设计的高等法院。其独特的现代风格在里尔的旧城区中成为显著的存在。
Facing the iconic monuments which are the 17th century Hospice-Comtesse and the Marcel Spender and Jean Willerval 1970s High Court buildings, the Peuple Belge building, with its contemporary style, is playing a part in the regeneration of the Vieux-Lille neighbourhood.
Peuple Belge大楼建在一处515 m²的拐角地段，高21米，包含6个地上楼层。建筑集餐厅、酒店和住宅多种功能于一身，一层是La Griotte小酒馆，二层是Le Cerisier美食餐厅，它们与上方的Les Nids酒店均由米其林星级厨师Eric Delerue运营，使Le Cerisier en Ville成为一个融合美食、设计和文化于一体的独特场所。大楼顶部的四个楼层容纳了带有宽敞露台和走廊的多单元住宅。
▼大楼建在一处515 m²的拐角地段，the building is built on a 515 m² corner lot
Le Peuple Belge is built on a 515 m² corner lot, integrated into the urban island and rising, over six floors, to a height of 21 metres. It offers a mix of functions – restaurants, hospitality, and accommodation. The first floor is home to gastronomic restaurant Le Cerisier and the level below is occupied by the adjoining brasserie, La Griotte. Both of them, alongside the Les Nids guest rooms on the upper floors, are managed by Michelin-starred chef Eric Delerue, who establishes Le Cerisier en Ville as a unique location combining fine dining, design and culture. The building’s top four floors form a multi-dwelling unit with generous terraces and loggias.

▼建筑与环境相融，to adapt and to assert an architecture anchored in its context
The building’s different heights create a stepped profile with a variety of sight lines. Work on the volume has been informed by a desire to integrate the morphology of the surrounding built environment – traditional buildings as well as more recent structures. This has led to both a determination to adapt and to assert an architecture anchored in its context, and which structures the street corner through its volume expressed in a high-performance concrete.

▼ 水泥被运用在与功能紧密结合的结构元素中，cement were used for framework adapted to its different functions
Smooth, white and pared back, this cement has been used for all the structural elements. Its framework is adapted to its different functions: wide bay windows which open the restaurants onto the city; for the accommodation, the design is denser to offer intimacy to residents, and on the top floors, openings provide residents with clear views over the city. A prototype was produced on site and various finishes were tested in the factory (smooth, semismooth, acid etched, etc.), before we chose this polished concrete.
▼从远处看大楼，view from far away
This material was used for the structural elements, the beam structures, thus lightening the structure by creating large window openings. The elements pre-fabricated in Belgium were delivered every two days, due to limited space. Just in time delivery was used during construction, which was staggered over nine very precise stages.
