Het Bivak

Last weekend  the Netherlands had an anual "open Monuments" day. Mostly we go to look for something interesting in the country but this year we noticed  we had an monument in our own village Almere Haven named "The Bivak" We jumped on our bikes and cycled to an allotment complex. The "monument" happened to be a mobile home or construction barn that was used in 1975 by the first  people wo had to make a new town here. There were eight of these construction barns for  divers people to live in for some time and to think about  creating a new town.

This is inside the barn. They were meant to be used for  one year, but that ended three years later. 
Well it s a long story to tell here, but for us interesting as we live in this place from 1979.It is now in use as an office for the allotment complex.

4 opmerkingen:

  1. Ja, dat gebouw ken ik nog wel. Wij wonen al vanaf 1978 in Almere. En nu we weer in Haven wonen zijn we weer helemaal op onze plek.

  2. This does not look like a barn at all. So luxurious it seems!

  3. It looks very different from the inside.
