Drents Archive Renovations
It is so wonderful when the old architecture meets the new amazing designs! That is the case with the Drents Archive renovations that was done by Zecc Architecten. The old building of the city archive has been completely reorganized and equipped with a brand new entrance in a futuristic style! The reorganization of the structure and design of the city archive building is quite symbolical, because the access to information has now completely changed. The exterior/ interior of Drents Archive 3.0 concept is totally compatible with the current demands for information.
In the renewed archive, there are no longer cards with family trees and such, there are different digital equippment to navigate in the archival material, which makjes the data accessible to larger audiences. The reconstruction is quite breathtaking, featuring a lot of the original design, but with a modern appeal!
