New entrance hall Van Gogh Museum
The Van Gogh Museum - one of the most important museums in the Netherlands - has a new entrance hall. Although not being a large-sized museum it is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Amsterdam with about 1.5 million visitors per year.
Despite this already impressive number the museum still has the potential to attract more people. A new spacious entrance building has been realized to optimise the stream of visitors, especially in peak periods. The immediate result was a growth of 200,000 visitors in the last four months of 2015.
The design of Kisho Kurokawa architects & associates with further elaboration from Hans van Heeswijk architects shows a highly transparent entrance hall that offers the chance to improve the flow of visitors fundamentally.
Theateradvies bv was the consultant for internal logistics and furthermore advised on various aspects such as the design of the coat check, the layout of the cloakrooms, and the capacity and positioning of the escalators and lifts.
