Fosbury & Sons goes international
Fosbury & Sons has opened its first international venue. The Belgian co-working company has moved into the former Prinsengrachtziekenhuis (Prinsengracht Hospital) in Amsterdam. The final redevelopment phase has been completed — the building, listed as a national monument, has been entirely transformed into stylishly appointed offices and work places, inspiring meeting rooms, event spaces, and a restaurant where entrepreneurs and companies can meet and mingle. The iconic premises offer room for more than 250 companies and entrepreneurs. The founders of companies such as Blendle, Van Moof, TicketSwap, Ace & Tate, Top Notch, Tony Chocolonely, The Media Nanny and Temper are among the first members of Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht.
Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht is the first branch outside Belgium of Fosbury & Sons. The company was founded in 2016 by Stijn Geeraets, Maarten Van Gool and Serge Hannecart who set out to radically change the office world with the motto ‘Not Your Ordinary Office’. Following the first location at the WATT Tower in Antwerp, a 7,000 sqm. (75,347 sq.ft.) was launched on the premises of a modernist landmark building in Brussels by Polish-Belgian architect Constantin Brodzki. Additionally, Fosbury & Sons opened two other venues in Brussels in 2019. Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht is the first Dutch location of the Antwerp-based company. A second Dutch location in the Amsterdam Westerdok area is currently being developed and is expected to open by the end of this year. Additional branches are to open shortly in Antwerp, Valencia, Ghent, and The Hague.
