Light is an essential component 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.
City highlights that already have been transformed:
– Transformatorhuis at the Oude Rijkswerf Willemsoord; Home of a unique rectifier (kwikdamp-gelijkrichter), which transforms electricity to constant voltage
– Radome; A powerful 3D-radar, an eyecatcher at the Marinemuseum at Willemsoord
Other objects, which we already appointed in the Lichtkansenkaart, will follow in the future.
