The renovation and the newly built extension of the Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden, Belgium has been completed recently. It was designed by the Dutch practice Happel Cornelisse Verhoeven and the British practice Julian Harrap Architects. I was informed by Divisare's newsletter about this interesting heritage project. What grabbed my attention is the hero image used in the newsletter, shot by Karen Borghouts. It is almost surreal. Compared to neighbouring buildings the museum extension looks like a drawing, almost without any depth. Obviously the flat windows aligned to the surface of the facade enhances this perception. The photo is super crisp,
