Twice a year, De Derde Long organizes an inspirational event with a specific theme. The theme of this year’s first event is “Biophilic design: from ego to eco-architecture”. Three experienced speakers will discuss the impact of design and biophilic architecture on humans. The strength of these events lies in the effective cases presented by the partners of De Derde Long, which are directly linked to the respective theme.
‘Is our health also affected by architecture?’
The event in October 2023 explored the impact of acoustics, light and indoor climate on our health. During this event, we proudly presented the new office building of construction company Dethier, focusing on general light comfort. Our case was substantiated by Wouter Ryckaert, Professor of Industrial Engineering at KU Leuven. He shared his insights on Human Centric Lighting (HCL) and visual comfort.
In addition to knowledge transfer, these events of De Derde Long provide an opportunity for networking. This is supported by our B2Build Academy, a networking organization that brings together architects, engineering firms, building owners, energy experts, governments… by facilitating interaction among all members. What makes this collaboration even more special is the fact that the focus lies on sustainability and knowledge sharing instead of pure commercial gain.
For architects, engineers, engineering offices, professional builders, interior designers, contractors, business managers and building owners, De Derde Long is a valuable source of information. The events and publications of De Derde Long encourage new cross-disciplinary developments with the future in mind. A vision we are happy to be a part of.

Sustainability and health play an increasingly prominent role in construction. Various standards and labels have been created to assess the environmental and human impact of buildings, such as BREEAM, LEED and WELL. Lighting is also important in this regard. Below, we explain what you should consider in terms of lighting to achieve the best quality labels.Read more
Accent lighting: creative lighting design
Lighting design is more than just adding light to a space; it is an art form that greatly improves the atmosphere and experience of an entire building. At Multiline, we understand the subtleties of light. We create ambient and accent lighting that blends seamlessly into the architecture and enhances the function of a space.Read more
