Rue des Fleuristes: a flower of heritage

Located in the Marolles district, number 27 Rue des Fleuristes/Bloemistenstraat was built in the middle of the 19th century by the architect Boveroulle and was once home to Pohlmann, Dalk & Fils, a company specialising in elements of interior decoration. The owner of the premises, Brussels Public Welfare Services (CPAS/OCMW), now wishes to honour the building’s industrial past by creating reproductions of the factory on two panels that will adorn the entrance hall. In addition, other reproductions will be hung on the walls of the two gardens. The CPAS/OCMW will be working closely, at their request, with the tenants of the thirty apartments and a large number of local residents, whom it will help to become ambassadors for the building and the urban block. In this way, they will be able to recount the short and the extended history of the site, both personal and public.

A partnership between the CPAS of City of Brussels, the non-profit association Coordination et Solidarité Sociale des Marolles and the tenants of the building.
