PROJECT – Chemiserie
Rue Jules Delhaize 41, chaussée de Gand 52
1080 – Bruxelles


Combining the proximity to the city with the tranquility of an inner courtyard setting, the OAZO-designated Chemiserie is a fully renovated industrial-style building. Named for its former purpose as a shirt-making factory, this OAZO is removed from the urban bustle yet well-connected to pubic transportation and local businesses. The 66 units benefit from the large windows of the original construction, so each apartment is bright and looks out over the 3,600m² communal garden.

Over 200m² of indoor shared spaces are available to the residents!
