Z33 has been constructing a new building since 2017. The new extension, together with the renovated exhibition wing, will form a new House for Contemporary Art in the city centre of Hasselt in 2019.
The Italian architect Francesca Torzo is responsible for designing the new Z33 premises. The sober but distinctive exterior with its diamond shaped rumble brickwork harmonizes with the brick-built architecture of both the existing exhibition wing Vleugel ‘58 and the adjacent beguinage. The new building falls into place like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle, complementing its historic beguinage surroundings.
