contributed by Atelier_PRO

The Cultuurhuis (House of Culture) in Winschoten is a building in which expression in all possible dimensions will be practiced, performed and admired. In this cultural centre where various visitors come together, a theatre, a music school and a library are connected with each other by means of the central location of the foyer. The building functions as an intermediary between the old city centre and the northern, wider arranged urban redevelopment and extensions. The Cultuurhuis is situated on the edge of Winschoten's intricate centre, which is characterized by two-layered brick houses, in Groninger clay. This small scale atmosphere has been transformed in the Cultuurhuis by using horizontal, floor-high bands that both attract and revolt.Due to these horizontal sections, roundings, overhangs and extraordinary brick detailing that are reminiscent of the Groninger expressionism, the building has a very strong own identity. Thanks to these sections, a sense of human scale is created.
