KBR is the national academic library of Brussels. All Belgian publications are collected, managed and studied here. Meanwhile a rich collection of cultural and historical heritage of more than 8 million documents. This makes KBR the literary and scientific memory of Belgium. The archive consist of publications by Belgian authors, valuable books, manuscripts, newspapers, prints, scores, coins and much more.
The task of the KBR is to give visitors access to the collection, to facilitate research and to offer a broad cultural experience. With the aim to bringing people and knowledge together and sharing heritage with the world. The works can be consulted on site, but cannot be borrowed.

Bruns has been given responsibility for the complete furnishing of the entrance hall of the Royal library of Belgium. After receiving a very complete design from Studio Roma, Bruns has engineered, produced and installed everything down to the last detail. One of the spectacular parts is the huge counter made of walnut. This is equipped with a back wall with uprights that partly create a view through and at the same time shield the back office. Moreover, walnut is a material that has been used throughout the entrance hall. In addition to the large counter, there are also a number of cabinet walls and luxury bookcases realized. Special about this is that some parts of the bookcases can rotate to close passage. Finally, there is a large area with lockers and signalisation has been taken care of.

The entrance hall is one of the three parts of the Royal library of Belgium project. Besides the entrance hall, Bruns also realized the exposition ‘The World of Bruegel in Black and White’ and the Librije area in the new museum.
