Minderbroederssteeg in historic Gouda
After determining that most parts of this monumental building (Rijksmonument) had a history of ages, including the wooden floors and roof structure, we managed to puzzle three nice 3-story dwellings inside, giving this building the revival that it deserves. The big old wooden doors will give access to a collective entrance. At both sides of the pitched roof, 3 new dormer windows are added cladded with rusted corten steel. The dormer windows at the backside also hide the three individual air/water heat pumps.
