week 35: Apothekersdijk Leiden open during Heritage Days
During the Open Monumentendagen 2023, the Apothekersdijk could be visited.
A report of this can be heard on Sleutelstad.fm.
This building is being thoroughly restored by construction company Burgy to the design of MW Architectuur.
Construction is still in full swing and there are many special elements on show. For instance, there is a trial run of the staircase we wrote about earlier.
There are unusual hoods on display. The roof on the front house and the summer house have been restored authentically and the vanished roof on the back house has been reconstructed.
The entire property is preserved by insulating where necessary and installing energy-efficient installation. And - as befits a restoration - conservation comes before renewal. So as little new material as possible will be used.
