Château de Jolimont is a heterogeneous collection of buildings from different eras since the 16th centuy atop a hill in Watermael-Boitsfort, on the outskirts of Brussels, bordering the Sonian Forest. Occupied by succeeding creative minds, an atmosphere of bustling creativity pervades the ruins and gardens. Building upon the narrative of an Academy for the Arts, the transformation of Jolimont will bring together varied workspaces - ranging from workshops to offices to meeting spaces or recording studios - with areas dedicated to culture and wellbeing : a rare garden, a spa, a restaurant, an observatory and a grand central library. All come together in creating the workspaces of tomorrow.
