Van Abbe Teahouse

The design for the Van Abbe Teahouse was created in response to the context of the site. On one hand, the river Dommel dominates the area and creates a green environment. On the other hand, the historical context reminds of the determination to share the love of art with people of any social status. These elements ask for a building that is open to the public and has an organic volume. This was translated into a building with a fluid shape that elongates the perceived space and creates a seamless transition between the open, bright siting area and the more private and quiet exhibition space. The transitional space becomes a “bridge” between spaces and is surrounded on both sides by small ponds where rainwater is collected.
