A tough transformation district with a rough edge between the Piushaven and the Aabé factory, that's Fabriekskwartier. At the edge of the city center of Tilburg, a former bus depot is being transformed into a rough, inner-city residential environment with approximately 450 homes. A new and sustainable area with an innovative approach to themes such as water, energy, mobility and greenery, developed by Triborgh. Abdalkader Abdalwahed painted the logo of Fabriekskwartier on one of the buildings that will be remained in this industrial area.
