Location of the initiative:

 The NETHERLANDS


Relation to Strategy 21 Recommendations:

D11 - Develop new management models to ensure that heritage benefits from the economic spinoffs that it generates


Brief description of the initiative:

The designers’ conception of a durable and simple renovation in order to maintain the industrial character of the gasworks is highly appreciated. The high quality of the immediate vicinity creates visual cohesion between different parts of the complex and the buildings.


Brief assessment of the initiative’s results:

The new function of the Westergasfabriek suits the project well and the whole area is now a successful public quarter. It is an excellent example of both clear vision and management of collaboration amongst government, business and creative endeavours. In a European context, the Westergasfabriek is a model for the implementation of new creative, social and cultural life into an industrial heritage site.
