ECO BUILDING

 The Woluwe outlet is the first eco-built store in Europe. To achieve this result, CAMELEON integrated an environmental aspect to each stage of the project, from its initial design to its final implementation.

To ensure CAMELEON WOLUWE would withstand the test of time, CAMELEON strove to ensure excellence in
5 areas : the choice of materials, biodiversity, the site location, the project conception and energy.
