Dutch King opens Museum Voorlinden
On Saturday, 10 September, King Willem-Alexander officially opened the Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar. The museum is the home of a collection of artwork, known as the Caldic Collection, gathered together by Joop van Caldenborgh. The museum is open to the public starting on Sunday, 11 September.
Pieters Bouwtechniek designed the construction, from basement to ridge beam, and they have supervised its construction very intensively in order to achieve this extremely cohesive end result where every little detail simply had to be perfect.
The museum has already been reviewed with high praise by the media. Bernard Hulsman in het NRC: ´This roof construction, unique to the Dutch museum world, provides magnificent illumination of the halls within'. The media agrees: a fantastic museum.
Recently, Museum Voorlinden posted a Sneak Preview of the museum on the Internet.
