Museum Café 2010

Pending the total restructuration of the then entrance building into the 2016 museum café, a temporary café was designed. The available Rietveld replica chairs received a polyurea coating. Since the new museum policy allows for original objects only in its spaces, a reinterpretation was allowed for.

Cloak Room 2010

Design for a temporary cloak room in the entrance building. The interior design proposed to set the industrial feel of the space off against the lockers. Although the lockers continue to refer to the architecture through their finish, they have been made special in some aspects. Most importantly, some lockers were replaced by showcases exhibiting items from the fashion and costume collections. Thus the deposition of personal items is linked to the museum's items. The photo on the wall is by Joke Robaard.

Entrance and museum shop 2010

Design for a temporary but fully functioning entrance and museum shop, with better routing, exhibition facilities, use of space, furniture and storage. Installing a 9 meter long stainless steel counter behind the stairs, created room for handling large numbers of visitors. With a view to using the space as a museum café in two years time, the counter's body has been flexibly designed for later use as a bar. Displays and cupboards have been incorporated in the building's design as much as possible, to keep them modest and transparent.
