Since the ’20, Thor Central, a former coal mining site, brought wealth, urban development and energy to the Limburg region. The right wing of the building has been renovated in cooperation with 'Onroerend Erfgoed Vlaanderen', while preserving its majestic and impressive character.
Today we have a unique heritage site adapted to the current norms and expectations of today's organizations. The former functional identity is still experienced in the contemporary building by the choice of materials, the finishing touch and the preservation of heritage elements. This impressive industrial setting radiates its energy on every visitor and encourages people to be creative and innovative.
