The Grand Café restauarant De Koperen Tuin is part of the monumental Prinsentuin. The building is a copy of the original and redesigned by architect Roodbaard in 2004. Curved shaped paths and green areas and ponds.
The original symmetric volume is disturbed by the Pier Pander museum at the eastside. Attached to the existing parlour area of the building we added a pavilion of 150m2. The dominating existing curved wall we lengthened and ended it with the new addition. The attachment reacts strongly on the round shapes of the prinsentuin. A beautiful view is created over the Prinsentuin and over the city canal.
To accumulate the building with the park we chose for a wooden façade. Western Red Cedar planks are bended and placed. In time they will turn grey. The greying process depends on the situation and orientation. In time the building will fit in well with the surrounding park.
