In 1860 the first brick was laid in the form of a village school. In 1896 the school welcomed a new neighbour: a farm house. Over a century later, both buildings inspired Dr. Prof. Herman Wittockx to create a unique metamorphosis. Hubermont went from a place of elementary education to a workplace for adult learning: a unique corner in the educational landscape of Europe.
“A SPACE FOR DEVELOPMENT”
In 2014, due to the growing demand for Hubermont’s key elements of space, exclusivity, nature and privacy, the founder began contemplating a second Space for Development. In 2017 this new Space opened its doors. Unlike the first building (La Colline), which was built in a classic Ardennes style, this second Space (La Vallée) was built in a modern mix of natural vs. industrial. This unique blend combined with Hubermont’s philosophy opened up a whole new world.
