The owner of De Koele Costa had to contend with heavy wear and tear, as well as coastal weathering, of this popular beach pavilion and decided to invest in a replacement building. Jan Snel was commissioned to restore the venue back to the lively and trendy beach pavilion it had once been.
The brand-new beach pavilion had to be completed before summer. Not only would it have to withstand harsh weather conditions, but it also had to meet the current hospitality sector design trend that prioritises harmony with the surrounding environment and a sense of authenticity.
To protect the pavilion against the rough weather conditions that a building on the North Sea must endure, a fully galvanised cage construction was chosen. This prevents rust, among other things. The natural look and feel were chosen so the building would not detract from its beautiful natural surroundings. This was achieved by wooden tongue-and-groove boards, which were applied as cladding on both the interior and the exterior.
