The beautiful neoclassical building situated at Kipdorp 10 recently underwent a thorough renovation, whereby the historical, architectural elements were restored with the utmost care. To fully honour the rich history of the location, FRANQ derives its name from the building’s former occupant – a bank. The vault where the Belgian Francs used to be kept has been restored to its former glory and transformed into a unique wine cellar.
