The new National Archives

Ground-breaking ceremony - Planned completion 2025

The groundbreaking ceremony for the new archive building in Belval took place on 3 March 2022 in the presence of Vice-Premier François Bausch and Culture Minister Sam Tanson.

The building, which has an estimated budget of 77.2 million euros, will have a total usable area of around 16,000 m². The expected build time is 36 months. At the end of that time, the national archives collection – currently located on the Heilig-Geist-Plateau in Luxembourg – is to relocate to the south.

What is special about this new building, which was designed by the architectural offices of Paul Bretz, is that it is to be energy positive, i.e. it should consume less energy in a year than it produces. To achieve this, all the façades and the roof will be clad with photovoltaic panels in combination with geothermal energy, a heat exchanger and energy buffer storage.

In addition, recyclable and reusable materials with a low environmental impact will be used for the construction.

The new archive building, which is to have a public square with two city forests at the front, will consist of three units standing on a base: administration; a linking block, and the stacks. Designed with different functions and architecture, they will be divided into five large functional areas: the public area, the administration area, the storage area, the logistics area, and the technical area.
