Cloud Seven is an exhibition, coworking and residential hub in the heart of Brussels created by long term patron and supporter of contemporary art, Frédéric de Goldschmidt, as a hybrid space across seven floors, that propels art into the office and home.
The front building, built in the 1820s, includes areas for coworking, two flats for longer term living, two lofts for short-term stays, a multimedia room, a bar and a Wellness Center.
The rear building, built in the 1920s, is designed to host temporary and semi-permanent exhibitions featuring works from the Frédéric de Goldschmidt Collection.
"Imagined as a space that harnesses a state of bliss: as they say in French, “être au septième ciel” or in English "being on cloud nine".
"Cloud Seven's mission is to be a place where different audiences can come together in a supportive, unassuming atmosphere to share ideas, be stimulated, and feel at home. It is the realisation of my dream to embed the ideas and questions that artists raise into the lives of the city's workforce as they shape the future of our cultural landscape, thoughtfully connecting art with life, and making art more accessible to the public."
