Zebrastraat was built in 1906 by architect Charles van Rysselberghe near the former zoo, between Kinepolis and the inner ring road. In 2002, the social housing project was sold to the Liedts-Meesen foundation which set about renovating it. Still retaining the original architecture, in 2006 ‘De Cirk’ was transformed into the Zebrastraat project. 2013 saw the completion of ‘New Zebra’, a newly built expansion in accordance with the same concept.
Beneath New Zebra's convex facade on Gustaaf Callierlaan, you will find the restaurant Jour de Fête. New Zebra also has underground parking, a garden terrace and a conference room.
Artist Nick Ervinck put his own stamp on the site with two works: a bright yellow ‘Swiss cheese’ structure on the roof and a veil-like construction in the same colour on the rear facade.
