Façade, Apartments

Gouda (NL)

2018 – complete

#architecture #façade #monumental building #license
Transforming the function of a building sometimes requires major interventions. Of course, it is necessary to mix the new and the old in a balance way when it comes to a monumental building. In this case the sides of the front façade have been “broken down” and set back in order to create loggias for the new apartments designed inside the building. The new structural pillars supporting the balconies and the roof, the frames of the new openings and the front shutters have been painted in a dark color in order to minimize their impact on the overall image of the original red brick façade, making these elements fade. The central main entrance has been kept, but renovated in a modern key.
