Gare Maritime – Brussels, Extensa

The brief

Gare Maritime is a pioneering hub combining unexpected retail, work and hang out experiences, located along the canal in the progressive city district of Tour & Taxis. It is a destination where all businesses are impact-conscious. A place where innovation and artistry open up debate and action, to impact society for the better and to accelerate the pace by leading the way.


As the bustling heart of the Tour & Taxis neighbourhood, Gare Maritime mixes and matches co-creation-based businesses, a food hall, bars, food markets, terraces and unconventional shops. This extraordinary concept is definitely catalysing the neighbourhood. New hotspots and events are fostering a pioneering energy that got people wondering… is Gare Maritime becoming Brussels’ new prime lifestyle destination? We definitely believe it is!


3DWD was asked to design and deliver creative 3D graphics which would create an opportunity for a selfie moment and/or show the potential of a temporary vacancy.

The Approach

Our team visited the site and learned about the uniqueness of the place, the characteristics of the units and the ambition level of the client.


Based on this visit we developed sketches to gauge the creative direction the client was looking to take and eventually turn these into print approval documents per unit.

The Outcome

The 3DWD graphics were successfully designed, produced and installed by our team and are being used by visitors as backdrops for their social media posts.
