The creativity-inspiring Convent of St. Wivina

The FamousGrey advertising agency swapped the urban environment of the capital city with its typical cafés and restaurants for an inspiring green setting.

The agency moved into the Convent of St. Wivina in Groot-Bijgaarden a few years ago. Nestled in a leafy setting, this religious establishment offers a unique and peaceful working environment for the 90-strong workforce. ‘The convent was left empty for ten years. The building was marked with traces of decay and vandalism. We have turned it into a contemporary office while respecting the spirit of the original building,’ says the chairperson, Marc Fauconnier.
