Park Abbey's major restoration project will end on a high, with the superb restoration and repurposing of the East and North Wings and infirmary.

The city of Leuven municipality awarded the work to contractor, Monument-Vandekerckhove. Architects, Studio Roma and consultancy firm, Ingenium devised the plans and will oversee the work.

Multi-use

The East and North Wings and infirmary are being repurposed for mixed use by EAP (Abdij van Park Heritage Site) and KU Leuven university. Following the restoration, large parts of these buildings will subsequently be passed on to KU Leuven under a leasehold agreement.

Eye-catcher

One of the highlights is the 16th-century chapter house situated in the East Wing. The first floor of the East Wing and infirmary will house bedrooms and living quarters for the priests and students of the priesthood. The attic floor of the East Wing will accommodate an additional exhibition space.

September 2021 - 2025

The work commences on 13 September 2021 and will continue on until 2025. The estimated cost of the work is 8,962,646.37 euros.

The Abdij van Park restoration project falls under the multiannual subsidy scheme provided by the Flemish government.
