The Predikheren in Mechelen opens its doors

After 40 years of vacancy, The Predikheren reopens as the brand new city library of Mechelen.

The Predikheren is one of the most extraordinary libraries in the country. 

For decades, the former preacher monastery was a ruin and a city cancer on the north side of Mechelen, close to the Dossin barracks.
After a long-term restoration, the building will be given a new function: The Predikheren city library with room for culture and meeting.

Predikheren is a project of Korteknie Stuhlmacher Architects in collaboration with Callebaut architects and Bureau Bouwtechniek with Engineering offices RCR and ABT.
