The Groen Steenbrugge project is located on the outskirts of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bruges, directly on the canal towards Ghent. Since only its east-facing narrow side abuts the road along the waterway, the 3,000-square-metre property is well screened from raffic. At the entrance there is a passable old manor house, which, having been renovated and equipped with a new roof, has been converted to provide student housing. Previously, a run-down multi-storey car park stood next door.
