Het Wenneker Schiedam | Royal HaskoningDHV

One of the options appeared to be to have the additions clearly distinguished from the original structure that served as a liquor factory. Thus creating a creative and intriguing new building that shows both history and progress.

The new Wenneker building will then hold a multifunctional theatre stage, a movie theatre for the cultural movie cooperation, teaching spaces for the theatre school ‘De Teerstoof’, an exposition hall for the visual arts department, a Tango-dance facility and studios for artists. It is completed with a restaurant. One of the special design features is the multimedia wall coming out of the new façade. The wall creates open communication with the city.
