Diamond-workshop Lieckens

In 1908 Petrus Lieckens gave the order to build this workshop for his two sons.

They had learned the craftmanship of
diamond-cutting and polishing in Antwerp.

The workshop had two levels
and a saddle-shaped roof.

During WWI the roof got destroyed by a bomb and
got replaced by a flat roof.

In 1985 the workshop closed it's doors
and it was left untouched since then.

In 2008 it got protected as industrial heritage.
