0069 Cultural Center WDT, Antwerp, BE
The development of Park Spoor Noord is one of the major urban renewal projects in the city of Antwerp, Belgium. Within the future park stands the existing WDT-Loods railway building that has been transformed in a multifunctional cultural center. Therefore, the building had to be stripped, renovated, and adapted to conform to the strict fire rules. WTD-Loods has been extended by adding a new hall, which will serve as a sport center for the nearby university. Atelier Kempe Thill’s design proposal idea was to extend WDT-Loods from its inner logic. In terms of materialization, the glazed sport hall contrasts with the existing brick buildings.
