The Felix Archives are housed in the 20,000 sq. m. Sint-Felix Warehouse, an icon of historical harbour architecture in Antwerp. Concrete containers have been built on its six storeys for the conservation of documents from the city’s archives.
On the top floor, a new oak roof structure accomodates reading and study rooms around three large, well-lit light wells. Access to the building is via a semipublic internal street.
