The design process for the CollectionCentre Netherlands (CC NL) is progressing rapidly. The joint collection building for the state collections of the Dutch Open Air Museum, museum Paleis Het Loo, the Rijksmuseum and the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands will be realized in Amersfoort Vathorst by design of cepezed.
Recently the partnership agreement between the four cultural organizations was signed. The collaboration was invigorated at the kick-off meeting last Tuesday through an official photo moment with the respective directors: Willem Bijleveld (Open Air Museum), Michel van Maarseveen (museum Paleis Het Loo), Taco Dibbits (Rijksmuseum) and Cees van ’t Veen (Cultural Heritage Agency).
The CollectionCentre will replace the existing depots of the concerning parties which are spread out over several locations, thus realizing optimal sustainable collection management and conservation of these state collections, efficiency and exchange of knowledge. CC NL is expected to be taken into use in 2020. The design team consists of cepezed and the engineering consultants ABT, Valstar Simonis and Peutz.
