Light is an essential in redeveloping an old city area. For Zeestad Den Helder Beersnielsen developed some designated areas in the city by making a ‘Licht-kansen-kaart’, a map with lighting opportunities. For years Den Helder faces the challenge to turn around the pauperazation and depopulation of the city. At the moment one of the problems is that people are no longer proud of their city. By lighting some of the most special and beautiful buildings, Beersnielsen wants people to look at their city with new proud eyes.
One of the city highlights has already been lightened, the Transformatorhuis Den Helder at de Oude Rijkswerf Willemsoord. In the same area we already have been testing a projection on the Radome. For other designated buildings funds have to be found.
