Atelier Circuler also has an open workshop where customers can work with purchased wood themselves.

Materialenbank Leuven is an initiative of Atelier Circuler, a non-profit organisation which has been offering open workshops and low-threshold workshops for wood and metalworking for several years. The Materials Bank had arisen organically from Atelier Circuler's circular ambitions and social commitment and currently focuses on the recovery and resale of used building materials.

The materials that are offered are derived from donations by private individuals, but the Materials Bank also works closely with the City of Leuven and local waste management company EcoWerf. In time, it wants to cooperate on a structural basis with the city council and other major players such as KULeuven for the management of their material streams.

Both individuals and professionals are welcome at Materialenbank Leuven. Together with Atelier Circuler, the Materialenbank can be used to design and implement all kinds of indoor and outdoor wood applications. These include (garden) furniture, playground equipment, shelters, etc.

The excellent webshop offers a good overview of the current range, but the warehouse can also be visited by appointment. At the time of writing, the Materials Bank is a young initiative with a strongly rotating supply. Visit the website to stay informed about current developments and available materials.
