made by holland to revive dutch soestdijk palace
On 8 June 2017, Interior Minister Ronald Plasterk announced that the Soestdijk estate will be sold to MeyerBergman Erfgoed Groep. Made By Holland, the winning plan, will turn Soestdijk, a former palace of the Dutch Royal Family, into a platform and showcase for innovators and entrepreneurs in the Netherlands. Made By Holland is certain to meet a pressing need in Dutch society.
Dutch companies, research institutes, and knowledge-based organisations are internationally renowned in many fields: from water management to offshore, from agriculture and food to fashion and design, from sustainable energy to gaming. At Soestdijk, they will have an opportunity to present themselves and their work to each other and the Dutch people. New initiatives will have a place and be accessible to a wide audience, but also to potential business partners, investors in young talent, and foreign trade partners. Made By Holland will shine the spotlight on the innovative power and the excellent performance of Dutch companies and knowledge-based organisations.
The winning plan was developed by MeyerBergman Erfgoed Groep. This family firm is the umbrella under which various organisations operate that share the common mission of active involvement for the preservation, development, and programming of heritage buildings. The organisation has emerged from MeyerBergman and has close to 50 years’ experience in inner-city redevelopment. Maya Meijer-Bergmans: "The redevelopment of Soestdijk palace is a complex job. We are ready to take it on because we have the in-house expertise to turn this challenge into a success. We know what we’re getting into: the Westergasfabriek, among other projects, testifies to our ability to restore and renovate building complexes with care. We turned the buildings and the surrounding grounds into a place where many different people feel at home.”
