The Port House is one of Antwerp’s architectural jewels. This funky and innovative building, with roots in the past, is the headquarters of the Antwerp Port Authority that accommodates over 500 employees. 

At the Port House, the port of Antwerp’s past and future come together. The bottom part was once a fire station that was on the port’s outside edge. During renovation, this beautiful station was restored to its former glory. There is no clearer symbol of the immense growth of the port of Antwerp.

Together with a striking and contemporary superstructure in the shape of a diamond - a monumental design of the famous architect Zaha Hadid Architects - the building makes up the entire Port House. As such, it is a metaphor for the port of the 21st century: a port with a rich history that is ready to face the future head-on.
