Visitor center Westerbork

Design a temporary function in the camp commander’s house of Transit Camp Westerbork. The interpretation must respect the historical meaning of the camp and the house, and must fall within the historical and current themes related to it.

The property is in very bad condition and visitors are hardly allowed. Therefore we designed a pavilion, a reduced and abstracted copy of the commander’s house. An open, transparent space in which information about the house can be found. With a view on the camp and the original camp commander’s house.
