Public Art in Den Helder

Woningstichting Den Helder has asked Arttenders to create a proposal for applied arts on residential buildings. Arno Coenen & Iris Roskam, the artist of the Markthal Rotterdam, won the sketch assignment. We will keep you posted on the realization process!

Woningstichting Den Helder is renovating several residential buildings in Den Helder. Inspired by architect Hundertwasser, they asked Arttenders to propose a creative concept in collaboration with artists.

Arttenders asked Pepijn van de Nieuwendijk and Arno & Iris to create a concept. Arno & Iris won the pitch based on their ‘Homage to the Women of Den Helder. Their sketch is based on the history of the City of Den Helder and its relation to the surrounding water. Women oftentimes stayed at home while their men were out at sea for months. Their homage therefore shows a woman of Den Helder, including the project architect’s original design.

You can find imagery of both proposals below.
