Daylight, indirect light and sophisticated artificial light - everywhere in the museum light plays an important role. Light deepens vistas, plays with reflection or makes stairs spin endlessly. And that is what site photographer Karin Borghouts is able to capture like no other.
Abundance of light
KAAN Architecten has a deeply rooted respect for the 19th-century concept of architects Jan Jacob Winders and Frans Van Dijck. They went back to basics by completely stripping the now fully built-up patios and building a new museum space inside. The new museum roof consists of 198 skylights that distribute northern light through the four voids on all levels of the new museum. In the historical museum galleries, too, very clear glass in the skylights on the roof ensures optimal lighting.
