In 2015, Clara and Pierre Crabeels began with l'Usine's project.
Seduced by its soul and convinced that projects dedicated to the public can be accomplished by anyone, Clara and Pierre Crabeels purchased l'Usine in 2015. They took the deliberate decision of restoring the building all the while remaining true to its identity. They, therefore, decided to keep the simple and reminiscent name l'Usine.
By undertaking renovations, Clara and Pierre were successful in increasing the number of workspaces, refurbishing the existing multifunctional commercial and living spaces and in making l’Usine more energy efficient.
