In Neder-Over-Heembeek, on the left bank of the outer-harbour of Brussels was a brewery. Over two hundred people worked there producing water, lemonade, beer and malt. Lacking water in sufficient quantity supplied by the Marly source, activities were stopped some thirty years ago. Over twenty years, a portion of the building was left abandoned while a printing company set up in the offices and installed their machinery in the lower part of the brewery. It took two young owners, working in packaging and transportation of artwork, ten years to turn this derelict building into a venue worthy of displaying some of the finest works of their clients’ art.
The result? A vast, magnificent venue that combines concrete, brick and steel and leaves no one indifferent to its beauty and soul. Clearly too beautiful to simply store such beautiful pieces…From this realisation, the idea was born to change the plan and use this former factory as an event venue showcasing its formidable character. And this is where the story of Silo begins. Success was swift to follow, with a continuous stream of high quality events and this was just the beginning… The rest is up to you!!
