This passage refers to the country home of the Liberty of Bruges that was built. Apparently the Orphans Chamber isnot just an abstract concept, but this could also be taken literally as one of the rooms in the home country. The country house still exists and is located at the Burg in Bruges, and currently serves as the administrative center for the city of Bruges.
