15.092 | Gare Maritime Inner Volumes

The “Gare Maritime”, located on the site of Tour & Taxi in Brussels, is a former railway terminal, built in the early 20th century. In this magnificent historical hall, Neutelings-Riedijk Architecten’s office has carefully inserted twelve pavilions in timber structure with a total of 45.000 m². They will host shops, offices and public functions to make the Gare Maritime a real covered city with alleys, squares, gardens and an esplanade for events. The structure of these interior volumes is made of wood. The cores are made of cross laminated timber (CLT) and completed with columns-beams structure and with ribbed floor in glulam. Walkways and cross stairs connect pavilions to each others.
