HI! site – Antwerpselaan 1, 1853 Grimbergen

HI! site is located in the old offices of the Douwe Egberts coffee factory. Anyone who drove by here a few years ago was treated to the smell of freshly roasted coffee. In late 2017, the factory closed its doors and coffee roasting came to an end.

Soon after, Global Estate Group bought the site and decided to give it a new, sustainable and functional use. Instead of demolishing the old buildings, they opted for a reconversion in which they used as many existing structures and materials as possible in a circular way. In the venue, a lot of the office material (office cabinets, archive structures etc.) was retained and recycled.
