Gouda (NL)

2021 – complete

#architecture #facade #monumental building #permit
A monumental building on Gouda’s central square needed a facade renovation for its ground-floor shop. From an anonymous shop window with a double door in the middle to a façade that could emphasise the building’s architecture and fit the aesthetic parameters of historic buildings. That was the challenge B3D faced during the permit application process. Using the original drawings as a basis, the result is an elegant front door on the left and a large window on the right. The window frames were realised with the traditional details of the era of the building. All around, there is a decoration of bottle-glass bricks. The main colour for the window frames and bricks? Old Dutch Green, of course, in homage to the traditional colours of local architecture.
