Kerkstraat 15+17

SISTERS RESTORED

The two buildings on Kerkstraat 15 +17 were neglected for years. Stadsherstel bought both properties, after the previous owners were approached by the municipality. Because foundation works were necessary, the cellars could be deepened. On this floor a kitchen diner was created. The condition of both rear facades was very poor and the facades were completely rebuilt. The basic layout of the remaining floors of the houses¬† were kept the same. All the woodwork was restored and painted in the original colors: green for number 15 and yellow for number 17. With the restoration completed, both “sisters” are shining brightly again.
