Mission & Vision

Why choose DeFabrique?

The factories of the twentieth century are like the cathedrals of the early medieval period: historical milestones and shining examples to many. The industrial revolution brought with it historic progress. This urge to innovate and the corresponding industrial heritage inspires us to this day to create just as much impact.

We aim to enrich people’s lives and believe that our industrial heritage allows us to do so. Industrial heritage leaves an indelible impression; it makes any experience more memorable.

As soon as we round the corner of the Van Eckstraat and spot the first rays of sunshine playing across the robust features of the old mixed feed factory on the ‘Kalverstraat’, one thing becomes undeniably apparent: this is a venue with unlimited possibilities.
This is DeFabrique. Exciting, Memorable, Unique.

DeFabrique organises and facilitates events in its characteristic mixed feed factory, which has been repurposed into a modern events venue.

After a visit to DeFabrique, guests feel as though they have experienced, seen, and tasted something that they want to share with the world.

Our team reinvents itself every single day and thrives on repurposing spaces, reusing materials, creating a characteristic atmosphere, and surprising people.

DeFabrique’s core tenets

  • Sustainable repurposing of industrial heritage.
  • Providing opportunities for employment and development.
  • Continuity in terms of quality, passion, and working atmosphere.
  • A focus on innovation.
