델프트 아카이브는 도시의 중요한 건물이다. 왜냐하면 기록보관소와 공공열람실 및 사무실, 작업공간이 있는 곳으로 이 오래된 도시의 역사를 저장하고 액세스 할 수있는 장소이기 때문이다. 벽돌로 구성된 건물의 정면은 저장 시설을 갖춘 건물의 시간을 초월한 견교한 성향을 표현한다.
Archival Repositories, public reading room, offices and workspaces
Office Winhov and Gottlieb Paludan Architects designed the new City Archive of Delft.
The Delft Archive is an important building for the city. It is the place to store and access the history of this old city; it is treasure room, study room and time machine in one. The new archive building is situated at the closing head of a narrow park that connects the site to the historic centre of Delft. The building has a compact organisation with offices, workshops and reading rooms at the ground floor and the archive depots in the floors above. The efficient layout allows for flexible use whilst supporting the sustainability of the building. The public reading rooms are situated along the entire facade facing the park and form the welcoming address of the building. The brick facade expresses the timeless and robust character of the building with storage as its main purpose. The rich relief in the facade connects the building to the elaborated tradition of brick buildings in Delft. The white concrete plinth clearly refers to the image of the public buildings in the historic centre of the city.
