March 11, 2024

Five special monuments: the ruins of Monumentenbezit. In our portfolio you will find five ruins: the ruin of Teylingen, the ruin of Strijen, the ruin of Brederode, the ruin of Nuwendoorn and the castle of Oostvoorne. The great paradox of ruins is that they show only a fraction of a once imposing building. How can you preserve something that is dilapidated?

Maintenance of ruins is about stopping decay, with the appearance that it continues. In fact, restorations are necessary to preserve the historic material of the ruin. We share our approach to these unique monuments in this new publication.
