Architect
Zaha Hadid

The city of Antwerp can now boast about having such an emblematic building by architect Zaha Hadid! The spectacular “Havenhuis” dominates the port and reinforces the dynamic image of the city. This building is currently the symbol of the growth of the port of Antwerp.

 

The architectural competition organized by the Flemish government’s department of architecture, together with the City and Port had one rule: the original building had to be preserved. That is the reason why the great Anglo-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid designed a project conserving the whole building but laying down a radically contemporary structure. The roof of the original building recalling the 16th century is now featuring CUPA 4 slates, quarried from Armadilla (in Spain) which highlights the beauty and elegance of any roof.
