Z33 House for Contemporary Art Extension, Hasselt

Francesca Torzo Architetto  


The extension of the Z33 art center completes the closed block of the beguinage of Hasselt with a blind wall to the street that orients the interior spaces toward the rear courtyard.

The external cladding of bricks handcrafted in the unusual shape of diamonds engages with the surrounding context in a unitary manner, evoking the language of the neighboring 19th-century buildings.
