nederlandse vereniging

  • The association of Dutch People in Greece, de Nederlandse Vereniging in Griekenland, moved to a new home called ‘stekkie’. The building consists of two floors and a basement and can house the many functions of the association, which include apart from social meetings, also workshops, courses, sport and cultural activities, aimed to bring together Dutch people living in Greece and Greeks that have a connection with the Netherlands.

    GFRA was asked for the design of the space, for which we introduced interpretations of well known Dutch icons, such as the recognizable Delft Blue tile and the facades of the canalhouses of Amsterdam, in order to create both a contemporary and a pleasant atmosphere reminiscent of the Netherlands.

  • Ο Ολλανδικός Σύλλογος στην Ελλάδα (nederlandse vereniging in Griekenland) μετακόμισε σε μια νέα στέγη, που ονομάζεται το “stekkie μας”. Το κτίριο αποτελείται από δυο ορόφους και ένα υπόγειο και μπορεί να φιλοξενήσει τις πολλαπλές λειτουργίες του Συλλόγου που εκτός από κοινωνικές συμπεριλαμβάνουν μαθήματα, workshops, αθλητισμό και πολιτιστικές δραστηριότητες, και έχουν ως στόχο να ενώνουν τους Ολλανδούς που ζούνε στην Ελλάδα και τους Έλληνες που έχουν κάποια σχέση με την Ολλανδία.

    Για το σχεδιασμό του χώρου οι GFRA παρουσίασαν ερμηνείες παραδοσιακών Ολλανδικών εικόνων, όπως το αναγνωρίσιμο πλακάκι Delft Blue και τα σπίτια στα κανάλια του Άμστερνταμ, δημιουργώντας έτσι μια σύγχρονη και ευχάριστη ατμόσφαιρα που θυμίζει την Ολλανδία.
