New event location in old shed. Two young entrepreneurs asked us to make a design for an event location in the 'Havenkwartier' in Deventer. The location at the head of the 'Bodenloods' is called PUNT and has a large and a small room; NoordPUNT and OostPUNT. The most important element in the design is a wooden volume that separates these two rooms. The kitchen and toilets are located in the volume. There are floor-to-ceiling cupboards on both sides, real eye-catchers. They are filled with crockery, beautiful objects from the owners, pots and plants. An artist, I AM EELCO, has made a beautiful mural on the front wall. The insulated concrete floor with underfloor heating, additional walls and new window frames ensure the sustainability of the building and a pleasant indoor climate. With the sustainability and the new use, this industrial heritage is preserved for the city.
