Building Developments in Antwerp

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Antwerp Buildings, Belgium. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Antwerp buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the city. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 1 page of Antwerp Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

Port House, Antwerp – 22 Sep 2016
This new building repurposes, renovates and extends a derelict fire station into a new hq for the port. Following the construction of a new fire station with facilities needed to service the expanding port, the old fire station on the Mexico Island site became redundant and relied on a change of use to ensure its preservation.

De Harmonie Antwerp
Winning design of an invited international competition for the transformation of Antwerp’s former 19th century concert hall “De Harmonie” into a “space of silence”. The building will be used as a non-religious contemplative centre for celebrations of important moments in life and individual reflection. The building will be carefully restored to bring back the historic glory of the house. Missing historical building parts and ornaments will be replaced by new elements in a contemporary interpretation.

KMSKA Antwerp
The assignment for Antwerp’s Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten (KMSKA) consists of the drawing up of a Master Plan for the extension and restoration of the museum; and this encompasses more than purely physical changes to the building. It is an extremely long-term project with a limited budget.

MAS I Museum aan de Stroom
The MAS was designed as a sixty-meter high tower. Ten gigantic natural stone trunks are piled up as a physical demonstration of the heaviness of history, full of historical objects that are the legacy of our ancestors. It is a storehouse of stacked history in the middle of the old harbour docks. Every storey of the tower has been rotated a quarter turn, creating a gigantic spiral staircase. This spiral space, in which a facade of corrugated glass is inserted, forms a public city gallery.
