All the right places: Martin's Favorite Spot

Meet Martin from LIFE and find out how his favorite spot at Fosbury & Sons allows him to easily disconnect from his intense job and establish conversations with other members.


FoS: Tell us shortly a bit more about what LIFE is and what you do.

LIFE is a real estate developer, specialized in residential and student projects. At LIFE (Living In Funky Environments), we always challenge ourselves to create unique and future proof projects.

We are also strongly connected to Fosbury & Sons through our founder Serge Hannecart. We share the same vision, values and passion for beauty and detail. My role as a Project Manager is to guide projects from plan to reality. The Fosbury & Sons office in Antwerp was my first project for LIFE. It gave me the opportunity to work closely with the Fosbury team.


FoS: We can find you almost every noon at this pool table, this must be your favorite spot at F&S?

Definitely. Since the day we moved in it has become a daily routine, a quick lunch followed by a game of pool.


FoS: Is it a way for you to destress?

In a way it is. Working in real estate and construction  is very intense.  When we’re playing pool we complete disconnect from our job. We don’t talk about work, we don’t pick up our phones and we don’t think about mails that might come in.

It is also a good way to bond with the colleagues. Since we started playing pool together, our friendship has grown a lot.


FoS: Did you already got to meet new people –from other companies- while playing pool?

On a daily base I mostly play with my colleagues. But with the Pool Clash we get the opportunity to play against people we haven’t met before, which is very pleasant.

The Pool Clash is definitely a great way to meet new people.


FoS: So, you’ll be the next Pool Clash winner?

Unfortunately I encountered a stronger opponent this time, but I hope to win the trophy one day.
