Gashouder

The Gashouder (Gasholder) is the most distinctive building on the Westergasfabriek site, with its circular, pillarless interior with its wrought-iron roof construction. No one who attends an event here will ever forget it.

FOTOS

Venue

The Gashouder (Gasholder) often is the frequent venue for large-scale exhibitions, live shows and company presentations. The Gashouder is a place of extremes: it is the home of Awakenings, a club event for 3500 people, and it was the location for artist Hans op de Beeck’s panoramic installation for an audience of one. If you’re thinking big, if you’ve got daring plans, then the Gashouder is the place for you.

Building History

The Gashouder was built in 1902 – at the time it was the largest in Europe. The gas was stored above the Gashouder in a steel tank that extended telescopically to a height of 40m.
