location Amsterdam
function archive, renovation
contributed by MI_MOA

The former sturdy and closed bank building, designed in 1923 by Dutch architect K.P.C. de Bazel, has been transformed into a spacious and light-filled public building for the city’s municipal archives. The spatial concept of De Bazel has not only been preserved, but has been intensified by bringing back the central roof light. By opening up the façade with two large windows, a new relation to the street is created. The monumental interiors (the main floor, ‘treasure chambers’ and style chambers) have been further developed by architectural firm Fritz, specialised in the restoration of monumental buildings. All other interior design is done by Claus en Kaan Architects. The City Archives is a public documentation centre for historic documents like maps, drawings, letters, administration, and a large library with sound, film and photographic material. All visitors can request these documents for review and study.
