Located near the Schaerbeek train station, this former industrial site was renovated and expanded in 2014 based on the principles of sustainable construction and with the aim to reduce energy consumption.

This energy-passive building earned the title of “Exemplary building” by Brussels Environment (IBDE) due to its quality architecture and high energy and environmental performance.

Zénobe Gramme consists of 17 private dwellings composed of five studios, seven 1-bedroom apartments, three 2-bedroom apartments and two 3-bedroom apartments, plus over 600m² of office space.

Residents also have access to shared spaces including a large and pleasant communal planted terrace, garden planters, a fitness center and a laundry room.
