In its heydays, this abandoned nursing home, which was built in the 1860s, had a capacity of approximately 100 beds. When the home had to close, the place was vandalized very quickly. Soon thereafter, the chapel was hermetically sealed to preserve its beauty. Recently, a reconversion-plan has been approved; the most delapidated wings have already been torn down. The central building and the chapel are awaiting reconstruction to commence.
Abandoned elderly home located in the green outskirts of one of Belgium’s largest cities. This geriatric facility was built in the 1970s and could accommodate more than 170 patients. When its infrastructure became outdated, the home was abandoned and is nowadays awaiting reconversion into a residential function.
This majestic castle in a wonderfully quaint environment is located in the far outskirts of Belgium. After the château lost its noble owners some decades ago, it was turned into a vacation home for children. During this period, several of the building’s once prestigious chambers were transformed into class- and bedrooms. When the organization that ran the children’s vacation colony went bankrupt a couple of years ago, the castle along with its beautiful garden was left abandoned.
