Porter's lodge Westergasfabriekterrein, Amsterdam
For a long time there has been a desire to replace the temporary porter's unit on the site of the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam with a permanent porter's lodge, which does justice to the monumental buildings and park-like surroundings in terms of appearance. The new porter's lodge is situated in the axis of the row of trees in front of the monumental buildings of the Conscious Hotel, level with the head of De Bakkerswinkel.
The porter's lodge offers space for two porters, a kitchen, toilet, installations and storage space. The project is part of the redevelopment of the entrance area of the Westergasfabriek site.
Pieters is the structural engineer for this special project.
