Between forward-facing high-rise buildings and blast furnaces of the past the new Steelyard square forms the center of Belval Ouest, a city development project which is currently constructed in Luxembourg on the grounds of a former steel mill.
The disused industrial site´s atmosphere was characterized by wideness and roughness as well as pioneer plants such as mosses and birch.
The former situation is necessarily literally covered by the new use and new design. Our major goal was it to let the now hidden qualities shine through the redesign.

Seating areas and new trees are concentrated into islands, which leave empty large areas of space and also serve as focal points in this emptiness.
Aging-capable materials such as concrete, wood and untreated steel in combination with rough detailing make it possible for the patina of the past to return.

Stimmungsspeicher

Mood Memory

Zwischen zukunftsgewandten Hochhäusern und den Hochöfen der Vergangenheit bildet der Stahlhof den Quartiersmittelpunkt des neuen Stadtteils Belval Ouest, der in Luxemburg auf dem Gelände eines ehemaligen Stahlwerks errichtet wird.
Die Atmosphäre der stillgelegten Industrieanlage war geprägt von Weite und Rauheit sowie von Pioniergewächsen wie Moosen und Birken.
Die damalige Situation wird notwendigerweise durch Neunutzung und -gestaltung buchstäblich zugedeckt. Wesentliches Ziel unseres Entwurfes ist es, die nun verborgenen Qualitäten der nutzungslosen Zeit durch die Neugestaltung hindurchschimmern zu lassen.

Aufenthaltsbereiche und Neupflanzungen werden zu Inseln zusammengefasst, die weite Teile des Platzes leer lassen und gleichzeitig in dieser Leere als Anlaufpunkte dienen.
Alterungsfähige Materialien wie Beton, Holz und unbehandelter Stahl in Kombination mit einer industriebauartigen Detaillierung erlauben der Patina der Vergangenheit die Wiederkehr.

The larger area Belval, a former blast furnace location with 170 ha of size, undergoes already since the middle of the 1990’s a transformation into a city quarter with a consequent mix of functions including living, working, education, science, leisure and recreation, also focusing on sustainable development processes.
