09 Mar First inventory of a monument in Zierikzee
I am glad to announce that the transformation of a national monument in Zierikzee will break ground next year. A visual inventory has been carried out in the past weeks and considerable effort has to be put in analyzing data to get an understanding of the site, the building, the history, local traditions and the touch and feel of old materials. However the building has been designed in the late 16th or early 17th century, there are barely any memories left inside the skinny house. An old fireplace points out that the building has a long history, but the design of might not not even be one century old. In any case combining the historical facade with an interior that does not have any marks of time left will be an intriguing job. Designing a contemporary 21st century interior which is rooted inside a historical shell of a monument in Zierikzee raises the question how to deal with the visibility of different eras.
