Transformation V&D Amsterdam
The original design by architect François Caron, dating from 1912, was radically modified by architect Jan Kuijt in the 1930s.
After 100 years of loyal service, however, the slender steel curtains he integrated into Caron’s Berlage-esque design were due a facelift.
Thanks to the Janisol Arte series, they still have their authentic filigree appearance, while the window profiles are now insulated and have been fitted with high-quality double glazing.
