The Havenkwartier in Deventer is a distinctive area in which industrial heritage, creative entrepreneurs, art, culture and food & drinks are combined with a still operational city harbour. The former suitcase factory sits in the heart of this area. Studio Groen+Schild designed a bright and airy studio for Bureau Beeldtaal. The steel trusses dating from 1947 were retained. These are now clearly visible from the new mezzanine. Our use of pure materials like steel, concrete and wood has allowed us to create this cool workspace. Our design took account of the fact that this office can be transformed into a residence sometime in the future.
