Castle ‘de la Motte’
- Wim Goes Architectuur
Three parts form one part: the renovation and extension of a castle, a pavilion attached to a walled orchard and a connecting bridge.
Each one separately and together with the others address the complexity of heritage,
historical context and the interweaving with contemporary yet timeless aspects.
Castle de Motte shares the park with several protected elements. The presence of the mirror pond, historical ice cellar and a partially protected park required a broad strategy. Through deliberation with several parties such as the heritage agency, city planning and landscape architects, the domain received a true revaluation.
