Shutters Island, also known as Lost asylum, is a psychiatric hospital in Belgium.
in 1928 this plot was purchased from the government to set up a psychiatric hospital. This for no less than 1.5 million Belgian francs. The first 10 patients stayed from 1932.
The founders found comfort and safety very important. There was also central heating and hot water, and all buildings were fireproof. Self-sufficient by the farm that was also located in the grounds, provided fruit, vegetables and meat.
in 1979 it became a university psychiatric center with 285 beds & 140 beds in a psychiatric care home.
the building that we entered is just one of the buildings of this huge center. It is clear that it now only serves as storage for a lot of old junk. There is, however a classroom and a Bar. But also very scary bedrooms with bathrooms and lots of children's stuff. What exactly the function of this building was was unclear to me.
