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.
