Lakenhal, Leiden

June 2019, Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden opened its doors after a long period of renovation and expansion. Beersnielsen has been asked for the lighting design. The new museum is a collection of buildings from several time periods and styles. Our design therefore had four starting points;
– the newly built exhibition halls with daylight in the front
– the painting rooms with diffused daylight from above
– the 19th century rooms, with windows and a lot of daylight
– the 17th century Lakenhal, which is darker
