(20 Oct 2020) Huis van Eemnes (The Netherlands) is a new culture house. It is an inspiring third place to meet, create and participate, where both organised and spontaneous activities take place.
It presents a combination of profit and non-profit organisations under one roof, initiating fascinating collaborations and programming.
The House has an important core function for the village, combining two extremes: the peaceful surroundings of the library and the dynamics of the sports and culture centre. The interior, a co-creation of aatvos and MARS Interieurarchitecten, provides a bridge between these two apparent opposites. This cohesion is achieved by emphasising togetherness while carefully listening to the needs and wishes of residents.
