Bierman Henket has designed the Museum van Bommel van Dam in Keulsepoort, The Netherlands.

This project is the conversion of a monumental post office into housing for the Museum van Bommel van Dam.

The museum wanted new housing to facilitate larger numbers of visitors and manifest itself as a cultural meeting place in the city.

Bierman Henket designed the renovation, along with two contemporary extensions and the interior. The concept – from vision to design to implementation – is a high-quality, sustainable transformation for a future-proof and inviting museum.

In addition, a public experience route has been incorporated into the building, starting on the ground floor and ending on the second floor at a green roof terrace and the "art window".

This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
