The headquarters for the Antwerp Port Authority, designed by the renowned firm of Zaha Hadid Architects, is another iconic landmark in the old docks north of the city centre. The building symbolises the dynamic, reliable, ambitious and innovative character of the port. The Port House is a landmark on the Antwerp skyline, consisting of a modern glass structure suspended over the historic Hansa House. The suspended addition to the Hansa House stands on three pillars containing the lifts and stairs. Two of the pillars stand in the covered inner courtyard of the Hansa House, while the third stands outside it and houses a panoramic lift shaft. The outer skin of the suspended structure is all in glass, while the four outer walls of the historic building underneath have been restored to their former glory.

Paul says:
It is not at all the Hansa house, designed by Conelis Floris II - it burnt down by the end of 19th century. It is the port firestation which was designed in the beginning 1920s by Antwerp's city architect Emiel van Averbeke, who felt inspired by the Hansa house. He made an eclectic, but in terms of handcrafts subtle design....- unfortunately this historical buidling gets just a contrast agent in the design by ZHA...
