I visited this with @obscurity and a couple of non-members about a year ago. Well, they were next door. Apologies for it being so out of date but I only just got round to looking through my pics. The great thing about this place was the fact that we turned up to see a house called Villa Directeur and had no idea this factory (just 20 metres away from the villa) was abandoned as well. The other two in our group decided to stay in the villa re-arranging chairs and shit so they could get their 1 epic HDR shot (sorry guys but it’s fucking true!) while me and obs ran around in here finding all sorts.

I know nothing about it other than it was an aluminium anodising factory which presumably closed down in 2012 judging by the calendars left behind.

"Anodising is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. The process is called anodising because the part to be treated forms the anode electrode of an electrical circuit. Anodising increases resistance to corrosion and wear, and provides better adhesion for paint primers and glues than does bare metal."

We only had about 20 or 30 minutes in here so the pictures are a bit shit, all hand helds but hopefully good enough to give you an idea of what was left behind. It was very much as though the whole company left without taking anything with them. Thought I’d share this for anyone who may have villa directeur on their map as it’s well worth a look if you’re passing. It was a year ago however so things may have changed now.

23. The floor in here (and the rest of the house) was covered in fire extinguisher powder.

It was clearly a nice house at one time but the factory was far more interesting for me, I could've easily spent a few hours in there.

Thanks for looking ya smelly fuckers :thumb
