The newsroom of the socialist newspaper Dagblad Vooruit first moved into the original building in 1931. Printing took place at 'Het Licht' printing press, located right behind it. Today, this art deco monument with a unique design has been repurposed as the home of the Upgrade Academy. It also houses Ghent company Nexxworks.
