Hasselt Court of Justice / J. Mayer H. Architects + a2o architecten + Lens°Ass architecten by Hufton+Crow
The Hasselt Court of Justice will be one of the two high-rise buildings that are part of the restructured former railway station. The site will include a park, public buildings, offices, hotels and urban residential blocks. Designed by J. Mayer H. Architects, along with a2o architecten and LensºAss architecten, the courthouse references in the design process refer both to the image of the “tree”, the hazelnut trees in the City of Hasselt’s coat of arms, and steel structures in the once industrial- and Art Nouveau-influenced area.
Hufton+Crow have shared with us these amazing photos of the project. More after the break.
