Sweet Herring

The project ‘Sweet Herring’ consists of a thorough renovation of three 1901 homes and the design of a new building adjacent. The project combines independent student units, apartments and a bar/restaurant. De renovationpart was completed in 2011. The artist Marjet Wessels Boer designed the artwork Double Glazing as a reflection of the world outside. It is a subtle piece of work in which the digital prints on the renovated windows literally reflect the opposite side of the street and momentarily confuses the viewer in what they are seeing. The restaurant and central stairwell behind the artwork light up at night which is why this piece is placed in the central section of this 19th century ensemble of Amsterdam facades .http://www.studiowesselsboer.nl
