Abandoned boarding school in a highly residential area somewhere in Belgium. Although the school has been abandoned for decades, the buildings are still in a very good state. Amongst the many postcards, audio cassettes, television sets and Disney posters, not a single piece of graffiti or trace of vandalism is to be found. All these little artifacts make it a silent, untouched witness of the past.
Once a Dominican Monastery with school, dating back to the 17th century, these buildings later became army barracks during the French Revolution. Later on, the buildings served even more different purposes, from a cotton factory to a brewery, storage building for the National Railways and a basket weaving company. In its final years, before it became abandoned, the building was once again a school, this time a technical college. Nowadays the buildings are protected and are being renovated.
