After the fire

BK City

TU Delft, Faculteit Bouwkunde, Delft (NL)

Following the fire of 13 May 2008, which demolished the Engineering department in its entirety, a team of five design agencies immediately set to work to prepare the Technical University’s old main building at the Julianalaan for the temporary housing of over 3,000 students.

Engineering Street

Kossmanndejong has designed the Straat van Bouwkunde [Engineering Street] in the central part of the building. Public services, such as the bookshop, service point, repro and plotting services and student union Atylos, and the E-point can be found along this street. A long wall with wooden cupboards connects the corridor area with the rooms behind it, turning it into a coherent unit.

The Boiler Room

The old boiler room has been refurbished into a café / restaurant, named Het Ketelhuis [The Boiler Room]. The scars and traces of the refurbishment have on purpose been left visible. The restaurant’s walls carry a statement in stencil letters by Bakema about design. Elements from these letters have also been used in Het Ketelhuis’s logo. The spaces around the restaurant each have their own character.

Saved from the fire

A fire destroyed the building of the Engineering department at the Technical University Delft in 2008. The department’s famous collection of chairs has been homeless ever since. From Tuesday 5 October the historically significant collection has finally been given a place of honour again in the departments building on Julianalaan 134 in Delft. Kosmann.dejong have designed a new display for the collection that consists of some 300 chairs, including ones by Gerrit Rietveld, Marcel Wanders and Chris Kabel. The collection is presented on a large stand, allowing the chairs to be admired from different angles.
