There are a lot of nice things at house number 13. Happy coincidence or not?
Grain market 13
Manager Ilse: “The grain market was in the year 2007, some decayed and deserted, and number 13 was already ten years empty. At the marché aux grains 13 can you now eat, sleep and buy clothes.’
Tassenontwerpster Annelies Timmermans: “I had been looking when this property was produced. The location was for us the most important: close to the modebuurt, in a pedestrian shopping street, surrounded by beautiful things.”
Diana and Brecht Studio Clear: ‘We fell eight years ago mainly for the potential of the then fully expire winkelpandje with attractive rent. Ideal for interior designers you stamp press.’
Small Market 13
Henry and Geraldine of St. Vincent: “The building didn’t fit with our initial plan, but we were in love with this old printing company and transformed them into this coffee shop-cum-concept store-cum-gallery. Everything here is, or depends on, is for sale, except the old cutting table in the shop window.’
Responsible public MoMu Klaartje: ‘On the side of the Drukkerijstraat is our educational studio with three large windows. It is fine that we are the creations of the children can show in the display cases, but also that passers-by can glimpse when they are at work.’
Gustav of Issey Miyake: ‘The house number is 13-15-17, and falls under the rubric of historic building ‘, the small and the large biecorff’. The complex was about thirty years empty and was severely dwindled. When the restoration was round in 1992, we have a few architectuurprijzen.
Fabienne of party concept store Yay: ‘We chose a street with plenty of parking, so customers will not need to as they make their balloons with helium come to pick up. The interior walls remained rough, industrial appearance contrasting with our stuff.’
