Brussels Architecture Prize | Neutelings Riedijk Architects, Gare Maritime [Major Intervention]

The Gare Maritime was transformed by Neutelings Riedijk Architects and Jan De Moffarts Architecten from a post-industrial ruin into a new office and retail district under a steel canopy. As Willem Jan Neutelings says: ‘We’ve designed a new part of the city, a city where it never rains, but with a pleasant, temperature-controlled climate that follows the seasons.’

“A calm and remarkable renovation that manages to transform the massive scale of these public spaces into an intimate experience. The warmth of this monumental backdrop highlights the interaction between moving beings and moving technology, between people and the shifting weather, and between distracted and busy citizens.” – Sofia von Ellrichshausen
