from ruin to cultural hotspot
In 2014, cepezed transformed the more than 125-year-old factory complex into the cultural hotspot of Helmond with cinemas, a concert hall, exhibition space, office spaces and catering. The director of De Cacaofabriek, Jochem Otten, can speak enthusiastically about this. Hannelore Strijs talks to city historian Giel van Hooff about the factory's industrial past. And cepezed partner Ronald Schleurholts explains, from his role as architect, what is involved when you want to transform an old and dilapidated building into a modern building.
