Art and culture
Arts and culture are more and more recognized in society. Cities are opting for a balanced distribution of cultural offerings and looking for new locations outside the centres. Downtown venues already in place will be upgraded and existing buildings made suitable for reuse in the arts and culture sector.
Housing of museums and theatres is to meet high and specific requirements in terms of climate, sound and acoustics. A new development is the increasing demand for multipurpose buildings to spread costs. Theatres want to be able to host festivals and concerts in addition to theatrical performances.
ABT has years of experience in the cultural sector. As a result, we understand our clients’ challenges and issues. We serve a broad clientele in the arts and culture sector; governments at home and abroad, museums and artists who have found ABT to be a partner with a passion for materials and forms.
In the renovation of the National Holocaust Museum, ABT provides the integral consultancy for the structures, installations, building physics, fire safety and acoustics. ABT was also involved in the realization of the Boijmans van Beuningen Depot. In this project, our façade consultants assisted MVRDV in the search for the best construction method for the spectacular façade. In addition, ABT supported the structural design of the entire building.
