Soda started in 2022 a designing study for Museum Gouda in which improving the visitor experience, the routing and increasing the accessibility of the museum are central issues. In addition, in collaboration with Energetica-Advies, Soda is analysing the museum functionalities (such as the museum climate and security), and the possibilities of improving the sustainability of the historical building complex.
The history of this group of listed buildings, in which the museum has been housed since 1947, dates back to the 14th century. The core is formed by the medieval Catharina Hospital, which remained in use as such until the 20th century.
