Acoustic Sound Barrier and Cockpit

National Highway A2, The Netherlands

Highly Commended


This iconic sound barrier has been designed to accommodate a luxury car showroom and service centre in a ‘cockpit’ within the structure. The barrier is 1500 metres long and 7 metres high, with the ‘cockpit’ inspired by the appearance of a jet fighter aeroplane. The structure comprises approximately 44,000 unique steel components and a space frame structure of galvanized 80mm x 80mm profiles and 82.5mm tubes in combination with a variety of gusset plates.
