Opposite the old houseboat I showed you a couple of days ago lie these doors of the information centre of the nearby National Park De Biesbosch. The lower door is somewhat hidden, but it is there! I love the elegant spiral staircase and the shadow it casts on the wall.
The whole building is environmentally sound, as it has been constructed out of sustainable material, uses rain water for the toilets and gets its energy from solar panels. The wood used for the walls is European hardwood and the roof boasts an exuberant growth of succulents, mosses and other plants. It blends perfectly with the surrounding nature.
Via an opening on the other side of the building bees enter a perspex tunnel to deposit their honey in a beehive inside. In this way visitors can follow the whole process. The temporary exhibitions are very informative. Right now they have a photo exhibition, so very soon I will step on my bike and let me be inspired by an interesting photographer.
My contribution of this week to Norm’s Thursday Doors. Go and have a look for more great doors.
