36. Former NIMIFI Printing Works

SATURDAY 16 and SUNDAY 17 MARCH 2024




Meeting Point 

Rue du Houblon 47, 1000 Bruxelles


In the middle of a predominantly 19th-century district, this first-class modernist building immediately catches the eye. The capital letters at the top of the façade still betray its original function: since 1930, it housed the Imprimerie Industrielle et Financière, IMIFI for short. This printing house printed securities as well as the newspaper L'Echo de la Bourse. In the 1970s, the printing house went bankrupt and was taken over and renamed New Imifi, or NIMIFI. Behind its imposing facade with round arches and wide windows, this building charms with its granite spiral staircase, its original open-shaft lift, its vaulted ceilings and its light-filled courtyard. In the early 2000s, the dilapidated industrial complex was converted into residential units.
