Control Centre Maxima Locks, Lith, 2002
A new lock has been built adjacent to the existing lock and barrier, both of which date from the 1930s. The complex required a new control centre based on extended specifications. Among other requirements, the design had to allow for extreme water levels such as those experienced in 1993 and 1995. The fascinating surroundings with huge works of civil engineering and a magnificent river landscape inspired us to give the control centre a robust but restrained character.
