Built in 1920 – 1940, municipal monument
This is one of only a few small buildings on the site. The carbide installation in the building made the gas for the blacksmiths’ torches and the carbide lamps. The same acetylene gas was used as a pesticide to tackle moles, rats, and mice. A wetted piece of carbide was pushed into the hole or passage and the gas released did the rest.
From 1961, the carbide building served as a glass and paint store. The basement has a ceiling made from unique glass bricks.
This is currently the home of Gunpowderstudio, an intimate, contemporary space for photo shoots, film shoots, team meetings, creative sessions, workshops, and presentations.
