We have been selected as one of the six final candidates to take part in the competition for the conversion of the former slaughterhouse site in Hollerich, Luxembourg. For this project, we are working together with Architectes Perry Weber et associés, B-architecten, JUXTA and DELVA landscape.
The former slaughterhouse (locally known as ‘Schluechthaus’) is located in Luxembourg City’s Hollerich district. The City of Luxembourg launched the European architectural competition last August.
The 2.5 hectare site has a strategic location near the city’s entrance and implies a fine urban articulation. Its urban and architectural programme includes an intergenerational and inclusive meeting space, cultural and associative activities, indoor urban sports activities (which is already the case), the perpetuation and valorisation of graffiti art and of the existing and protected built heritage, as well as a valuable link with the surrounding districts, existing and to come.
Earlier this week, we visited the site together with the other selected teams. The announcement of the winning consortium will be made on 12 May 2023.
