Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics, AZ Awards 2019

Housed in the interlinking buildings of a former palace, the Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden celebrated its centennial in 2017 by unveiling
an extensive 1,200-square-metre renovation. The surprisingly modern intervention by Amstel-based i29 Interior Architects layers simple minimalist elements over the historic framework to create a new ground-floor exhibition space for the permanent collection as well as a new ticket area, tearoom, gift shop and garden. Split levels and contrasting colour schemes define different parts of the new open entrance hall. The renovation provides clarity to a floor plan that was formerly a maze and also makes it a more appealing venue for meetings and events.
