NEUTELINGS RIEDIJK ARCHITECTS + BUREAUBOUW TECHNIEK
Once Europe’s largest train station for goods in the Tour & Taxis area of Brussels, Gare Maritime has been transformed into a closed city with a mixed study and shopping program and plenty of public space to relax. Under impressive steel roofs Neutelings Riedijk Architects designed the new Gare Maritime as a City District; “A city where it never rains”.
New pavilions which have been added to the existing structure, constructed with CLT (Cross Laminated Timber). The main aim was reduce use of cement. To shorten the construction time, prefabrication and the dry constructing method was preferred.
