The new home of Tournevie

Relocation confirmed

Quite a few people people asked us in the past few months where we would be moving next. After all, our current place at Quai à la Houille will be demolished come September to make room for new apartments.

And finally, here it is: we are shifting our HQ to Recy K, a new warehouse of Bruxelles Propreté hosting circular economy projects (recycling, upcycling, reallocation of materials, ...). Some of you will be pleased to hear that our old friends MicroFactory and MicroMarché will also be hosted there.

What does this all mean?
  • We are moving to Anderlecht, between Rue de Birmingham 102 and Quai Demets 55. The abattoir is only a stone's throw away; metro Delacroix is right next door and both Gare du Midi and Gare de l'Ouest is nearby. You can reach Recy K from the Brussels Pentagone in just 5 minutes via the canal » Google Maps.
  • We'll have extra opportunities for synergies with other projects, extra workshop space etc. If you have ambitious projects bubbling up in your head, be sure to keep an eye out; more information will be sent out soon.
  • You will be enjoying us in more professional surroundings, a context which is sure to improve our service. It means that we are gradually moving on from our first 'experimental' phase at our current location.

Closing & Reopening

We are not only moving. We'll also improve our procedures, update the website and much more. Making use of Tournevie will become a lot simpler and easier. We'll need some time for this, however. We are and still remain volunteers!

Therefore, we are closing from Monday 15th of August for about a month. A tentative reopening is scheduled for Monday September 19th.

What does this mean for members?
  • We realize that not being able to access our tools can be pretty annoying for some people in need of them soon.
  • That's why you'll get to borrow items for an entire month between August 15th and September 19th.

  • So join us next Friday 12th or Monday 15th of August to get what you need, insofar it is still available. A real scoop if ever we saw one!

Want to help us out while moving, or want to lend us a hand elsewhere? This would be greatly appreciated. If so, let Olivier know!


It goes without saying that our departure at Quai à la Houille will not go unnoticed. A one week blast will take place with plenty of live concerts, performances, exhibits, live painting, circus acts, interactive installations, DIY workshops, creator market, foodtrucks, local products, microcinema, dj's... Check it out on the site of MicroMarché and the Facebook event!
Don't screw it up!
Jan (left) and Maarten (right) are two of our most active volunteers. Both will soon leave on a long trip around the world (indepently of each other).
We decided to bid them adieu by giving them a few gifts every true volunteer at Tournevie would miss the most: Belgian beer, chocolate and tools!
