Quick Scan relocation Museum Jan Cunen Oss
Client: Municipality of Oss
Details: It was studied by means of a quick scan what the options are for re-accommodating Museum Jan Cunen in the factory halls with shed roofs of the former Bergoss Carpet Factory in the town centre. Using several scenarios, it was required to make clear what the museum at this new location could mean for the town and its inhabitants and what the investment costs would amount to.
Result: A report incorporating a global programme of requirements, as well as a draft design for the museum at its new location. Scenarios were elaborated on a variety of ambition levels, and insight was provided into which extra significance the museum could have for the town and its inhabitants if it moved to the factory complex. The scenarios were finally put in a financial perspective in terms of investment and operation.
In collaboration with: Hendriks Bna Architects, Heesch
State of affairs: The quick scan and the incorporated growth scenario for the museum were adopted by the municipal executive. On the basis of this decision, the municipal council made a preparatory loan available at the end of 2007 to finance the further elaboration of the plans.
