The Zuiveringshal West (West Refinery) is a long, tall building with weathered walls and a monumental roof construction.


The Zuiveringshal West (West Refinery) can comfortably accommodate a large number of guests for events such as plenary meetings, large dinners or company presentations. The main hall is often divided into plenary and informal sections. It is the regular venue for the annual Meesterlijk design fair, Denim Days: Blueprint and CineKid’s MediaLab.

Building history

The Zuiveringshal West dates from 1885. It was where the gas was purified using sand and chemicals in huge boilers. The building has an explosion relief roof: in the event of an explosion, the steel roof construction would keep the walls together, keeping the damage to a minimum.
