Construction works of the ArcelorMittal future World Headquarters began last year on the Kirchberg plateau in Luxembourg. An office building of nearly 61,000 m2 spread over 20 floors, named K22 , designed by Wilmotte & Associés architects. This emblematic building will have the particularity of highlighting the advantages of using steel in construction and its ability to be used in responsible and sustainable buildings.

The architecture of K22 is distinguished by its pentagonal shape, curved facades and a central atrium with a garden of 1,800 m2 placed on a semi-buried base of services and car parks in the basement(18,000 m2). On the ground floor, there will be a cafeteria open to the public, with an outdoor terrace, as well as 3 shops. On level -2, a 200-seat auditorium will be made accessible to outside visitors.

Not having planned to occupy the entire K22, the steel group was looking for an investor. And he found it; the Luxembourg state intends to acquire 50% of the building in co-ownership, for 273,5 million Euros.
