  • DRU Cultural factory - Ulft the Netherlands
     
    Interior design of the culture cluster in redeveloped listed industrial building


    The DRU complex in Ulft, the former iron foundry and metalworks, has been
    given the status of industrial heritage site. The seven monumental factory
    premises are being restored and prepared for new inhabitants. Since 2009 the
    so-called ‘Portiersgebouw’ (lodge) has housed a great many cultural organisations.
    M+R redesigned the entire interior of this enormous building. The concept
    for the changes was based on a modern, clean and bright interior to contrast
    with the rough, industrial surroundings. The colours of the separate pieces of
    furniture were inspired by the colours of the enamel pots and pans that DRU was
    so famous for. The fixed interior elements are all in black and white. The consignment included a theatre, popular music area, library, music school, council chambers/conference rooms, gallery, Grand Cafe with kitchen and the reception hall
    with desk and reading room. Additional meeting rooms, office gardens, a lounge
    area and general facility areas were included.

    “Wij zijn door ons wezen onmiddellijk verbonden met alles wat ons omringt en daaruit volgt ook dat wij alles ervaren als één samenhangend geheel. Dankzij dit oergevoel staan wij zo stevig op de aarde dat het ontbreken van absolute zekerheid ons niet hoeft te hinderen.”
