For us, community is number one. We believe that a strong community is essential for a coworking space. In this, we want to provide our Bolwerkers not only with a place to work, but also a place where they can develop theirselves personally and professionally.
At BLWRK, we strive to create a vibrant and inclusive community of entrepreneurs and freelancers who share our values of growth and connectedness. We consider it our mission to provide an open and flexible environment where our coworkers can work, learn and collaborate with each other, and where they can access the resources and support they need to realise their ambitions. We believe that by fostering a culture of creativity, innovation and personal development, we can help our members achieve their goals and make a positive impact on the world.
– The BLWRK Team
- The use of an ofﬁce or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge.
“The whole idea of coworking is to bring bright, creative people together and let the ideas collide”
- A new approach to coworking that emphasizes the potential for growth and development through collaboration and cross-pollination.
“On the fertile soil of the growworking space, a beginning artist in search of her identity and an established entrepreneur in need of new inspiration were able to build an innovative and successful techno-art company.”
Whereas the original meaning of coworking has been diluted by commercial companies often using it as a synonym for serviced offices or private offices, growworking strives to reclaim the essence of coworking and take it to the next level.
Our goal is to provide a supportive environment where coworkers can benefit from interdisciplinary collaboration and grow personally and professionally. We believe that by bringing together diverse perspectives and skills, we can create fertile ground for innovation and success. Join The Bolwerk and experience the power of growworking first-hand!
It is scientifically proven that being in nature is good for mental and physical health. Therefore we believe in the energy that the Fort 5 brings to our members and treat the nature with respect. It takes care of us, so we take care of it!
A comfortable workplace is essential for working in an organised and productive manner. By providing our Bolwerkers with a fully equipped workplace, we strive to ensure that everyone can work comfortably and in their own way.
Bolwerk is a coworking space in Flanders that was founded in 2018 with the brand name BLWRK and with the aim of creating an inclusive environment where entrepreneurs could collaborate and grow. The new company faced challenging times when the corona crisis hit, but the team’s perseverance, the support of the municipality of Edegem and a hard core of coworkers and customers helped push Bolwerk through.
Since early 2022, Sarah & Philippe have taken over the wheel of Bolwerk completely and are setting a new course. They continue to build a vibrant and inclusive community of entrepreneurs and freelancers. The Bolwerk aims to provide a flexible and supportive environment where members can work, learn and grow. In and around The Bolwerk there is a mix of different types of businesses, associations and people. Bolwerk wants to cultivate this fertile ground and grow beautiful things out of the mix of creative activities and entrepreneurship. We want to encourage cross-pollination between our members and encourage them to share their talents and work together. This is what makes The Bolwerk unique and what we want to continue to focus on in the future.
