New plans for the brewery


The warehouses of the former Jack-Op brewery in Werchter are to be repurposed. We are turning them into a new residential district 'Brouwmeester'.

The offer

This new building project comprises 46 modern apartments, two homes and a commercial area built around a large public courtyard. In the autumn of 2021, work will start on the first building ‘Mout’. We expect to receive the first residents at the end of 2023. The two other buildings have been named ‘Hop’ and ‘Gerst’ (Dutch for barley), and their construction will follow on from ‘Mout’ (meaning malt).

Modern architecture

The project comes from the drawing board at Archipelago, a firm of architects. The architects opted for modern architecture which retains a certain industrial look. Furthermore, the facade in Beverlaak will be kept, as a nostalgic reminder of the past. In this way the centre of Werchter will retain its identity.

BEN project

The decision has also been taken to build the residences to the nearly-zero energy standard (or BEN). This means that heat pumps and solar panels have been incorporated, along with floor heating, thermal insulating glazing and a high-quality ventilation system. All of this means that homes in Brouwmeester will be extremely energy efficient.
