A lot of planning was needed to remove this one wall, because it is a structural wall. This means that it was not possible to simply tear it down, as was the case with the other remodeling work. First, a steel girder had to be installed so that the ceiling would be structurally secured. During the construction work, the ceiling was supported, as can be seen in the photo taken from the old side entrance of the old building. At a safe distance, because entering the construction site is of course not allowed.
The removal of the wall enlarges the space, which will later serve as a meeting café, equipped with seating for the tenants in the house, the event rooms and all guests. At the moment we are planning together with fair trade organizations, which are already represented in the house, which possibilities there are to provide a small snack offer, so that also the physical well-being is taken care of.
