Château Grammaire

THE ABANDONED VILLA IN BELGIUM


Villa ‘Château Grammaire’ officially named ‘De Warande’, was built in 1923 by a rich family of industrials.

The stately building was initially owned by a brother of the famous playwright Gaston Martens. Although the building is not protected, the interior is very valuable. The entrance hall and the stairwell were designed by the well-known Kortrijk design firm De Coene. Also the villa has an eye-catching octagonal tower.

In 2012 a group of circus artists moved into the villa, which had been abandoned for almost ten years. Today, the abandoned villa is in use again as a home for the elderly. The original name for this villa was ‘De warande’ but it’s also named ‘Villa Wybo’ by locals. These photos of ‘Château Grammaire’ were taken in 2011 and 2015.
