People come to Amsterdam’s Westergasfabriek to meet, work and relax. This beautiful city park, with its historic factory buildings surrounded by expanses of green, also has workplaces, venues for large and small events, and a range of catering, film, theatre and exhibition facilities.
The Westergasfabriek develops and rents out spaces for creative, cultural and innovative entrepreneurs. We want to inspire a broad public and provide leisure opportunities in an exciting, sustainable and friendly environment. The Westergasfabriek is a meeting place for enterprising local, domestic and foreign visitors with refreshing ideas.
Exciting and refreshing
The Westergasfabriek encourages the use of its spaces for creative events, ensuring the area keeps its exciting and refreshing atmosphere. We participate in cultural projects and support collaborations between our business tenants. We use online media and our modern digital infrastructure to inform the general public about what we stand for and what we’re up to here at the Westergasfabriek.
From old energy to new energy
When the Westergasfabriek reopened in 2003, the complex had undergone a complete metamorphosis. The polluted site was cleaned up and turned into a beautiful park, a real asset for the city. The Westergasfabriek is regarded as a model for redevelopment, far beyond the Netherlands’ borders.
The Westergasfabriek is now keen to complete the transition from brownfield to greenfield and to do everything it can to become a completely ‘green’ and sustainable park. From old energy provider to new energy provider: not just energy in terms of gas and electricity, but energy in the sort of events we host and the energy we impart to visitors through our green ambitions.
