Museum De Pont Tilburg
A new routing and a grand new entrance for Museum de Pont on its 25th anniversary
Museum De Pont, a museum for contemporary art in Tilburg, is housed in a former wool mill. In 1992 Benthem Crouwel Architects transformed the monumental factory halls and the small, intimate wool storing rooms into a beautiful, serene space where De Pont’s various exhibitions and collections can be enjoyed to their full advantage.
More than two decades later, Benthem Crouwel Architects was again commissioned by the Museum, this time to create a new wing adjacent to the museum garden, where mainly film, photography and video art will be shown.
Inside the building we have moved the restaurant and the museum shop has been enlarged. The routing in the museum has been changed, creating a much more logical sequence of public functions: entrance hall, bookstore, library, restaurant, lounge with terrace and museum garden.
