Project plan for relocation of Arnhem Maycrete homes from 1947 to the Netherlands Open-air Museum
Client: Portaal, Veenendaal
Details: By order of the Portaal housing corporation, a project plan was drawn up that focused on the relocation of two so-called Maycrete homes (emergency housing from 1947) from the Arnhem neighbourhood of Alteveer to the Netherlands Open-air Museum. The plan outlines the realisation of a new public presentation dealing with the reconstruction of the Netherlands after the Second World War. The plan indicates how the project could be organised and financed. The project costs for investment and 10 years of operation amount to a total of EUR 1.2 million.
Result: In February 2007, the project plan was presented to and approved by the Open-air Museum and the Client.
In collaboration with: Storia, Apeldoorn
State of affairs: In August 2007, Portaal decided for cultural-historical and political reasons to renovate all 16 existing Maycrete homes and to preserve them in Arnhem. This means that the various parties will not be going ahead with the plans for relocating the homes to the Open-air Museum.
