Canal house in Dordrecht
Location: Dordrecht (NL)
Period: 2012
Architect: Elzing-Elzinga Architects

Custom-made in various techniques

Restoration project for a nineteenth-century national monument. Interesting fact: No less that 25 different additional types of tiles were made.

The clients envisaged restoring the building as fully as possible to its original state through this extensive and complicated project.

We examined the building and surroundings before launching into the project development. The additional tiles after all were meant to recreate the authentic character.

The tiles were used in a great variety of shapes, colours, styles and designs.

This demanded an extensive testing process of colours, tactility and lustre.
