C-Mine By 51N4E

July 20, 2011


Brussels firm 51N4E have converted the industrial buildings at a former coal mine in Winterslag, Belgium, into a cultural centre.

Called C-Mine, the project involved building two new structures to house theatres either side of the main machinery hall.

The new buildings have a white concrete base and steel shutters so the auditoria inside can either be flooded with natural light or darkened for performances.

The project also houses a design centre, music room, restaurant, event hall, exhibitions spaces and tourist facilities for the old mining site.
