CODA café, Apeldoorn (2018-2019)
Team: Herman Hertzberger, Dafne Wiegers, Jeroen Baijens, Rebecca Petrani, Harm Freymuth
Advisor: Herman Hertzberger
In museum CODA, a café has been created as a living room for Apeldoorn with a few effective interventions: two gigantic doors in the glass facade, a floor at street level and an interior in which the target group feels at home. This target group consists largely of 'advancers': these new elderly are one of the most important groups to take into account in the coming years. The new café is therefore very busy.
CODA café has two terraces: on the street side and on the garden side. The huge doors in the glass facades give access to the terraces, and when the doors are open, the inside also feels a bit like outside.
The new CODA café is not only a place to grab a quick cup of coffee before you go through the museum, but it will be also a destination in itself. A special place for a nice lunch, a drink with friends or just to enjoy reading in the cozy atmosphere. With two terraces there is always a perfect spot in the sun.
"CODA consists of 'places' that are open to many different activities and functions." Herman Hertzberger
