Whilst preparing the exhibition 'House of Arts', the farm of Studio Makkink & Bey in the Noordoostpolder served as a workplace for 'designers & artists more…
For RUHR.2010, European Capital of Culture, Studio Makkink & Bey was asked by Bureau Venhuizen to design guestrooms and to act as a curator in the GastGastgeber project.
Studio Makkink & Bey has designed the interior of eight rooms of the temporary hotel in the former water tower. The interiors of these rooms have been furnished with a wooden construction and a flip-up bed, to give the rooms a double function of private bedroom as well as a public workroom. An artist will be chosen for each room to permanently exhibit their work, a guest artist will then be invited to respond by making a new piece during his/her stay at the hotel.
