After a renovation of four years, the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam opened its doors for the public again. During this renovation the Zeemagazijn has thoroughly been refurbished. Liesbeth van der Pol (Dok architects) was responsible for the master plan and the design of public spaces, reception hall, restaurant and library. Senior lighting designer Kees van de Lagemaat was responsible for the entire lighting design.
The highlight of the renovation has been  the roof of the courtyard, het Open Pleyn. This roof is a self-supporting structure of 34 x 34 meters which was inspired by the compass lines of ancient maps. The roof was designed by architect Laurent Ney (Ney + Partners) and build by Anmeco.

The entire roof is made of 160.000Kg  steel and 40.000 kg of glass, which was made out of 1200 pieces in different sizes. It has 868 nodes with our TDE Cursa RGBW LED downlighter with onboard LED driver. They were looking for a LED spot that has a high brightness point-source RGBW output and a long lifespan. The Cursa RGBW LED spot meets these specifications.

Each Cursa RGBW LED downlighter can individually be controlled which creates a spectaculair effect that illuminates the entire courtyard.
