Constrasting old and new

“I consider it my job to sense the existing quality of a building and then let it speak for itself as much as possible. The challenge is to make visible what was concealed.’’ Architect Lyongo Juliana gestures to a series of five circular stained glass windows near the ceiling. “By painting these walls in a neutral colour the attention is drawn to those windows.’’

Juliana is passionate about the renovation of Hotel ’t Klooster and the Grand Café Augustinus, located in a former monks home (fratershuis) and its chapel.
