Fokkema & Partners was invited to design the restaurant and bar of the Royal Maas Yacht Club (Koninklijke Roei- en Zeilvereeniging ‘De Maas’). Another objective was to improve the logistics of the clubhouse, introducing modern day hospitality concepts with optimized use of the majestic monumental reception hall. All this with respect for the many social traditions. With one main intervention, so obvious yet unexpected, the complete program has been organised. The semi-circular annex has been outfitted with a new façade, in line with the design concept. With integrating the brass trophy showcases in the new concept, with large wall openings to connect the spaces, the old en the new have merged, creating a modern look with respect for tradition.
