Brenchie’s Lab is a publicly accessible makerspace in Aruba, aimed to bring open technologies for people to use freely to create what they see as important.

The project was initiated by Metabolic Foundation and has been boosted tremendously by Ateliers ’89, the Academy of Fine Arts and Design Aruba, UNOCA, Stimuleringsfonds, Biblioteca Nacional Aruba, Futura Lab.

Brenchie’s Lab continues to grow with support from the lovely people of Aruba and beyond.


Our mission is to support the democratization of technology by fostering a shared space to experiment and work together towards a more inclusive and circular future of urban design.


We envision an evolving set of community-managed spaces where everyone is part of the open source technology community, and where spaces function as incubators for community-based innovation that can be tested, co-developed, and implemented in cities around the world.​
