Fort Rijnauwen is the largest fort of the Dutch Waterline and is owned by Staatsbosbeheer (the Dutch Forestry Commission). The design “Zomerkamer” (Summer Room) consists of a fully glazed demountable orangery with a demountable wooden screen made of straight branches. It can accommodate up to 100 people for presentations and events.

For this project, Bureau Bouwkunde has undertaken the cost estimation and provided support for the permit procedures. Additionally, Bureau Bouwkunde has handled the architectural, structural, and installation engineering development.

The design is a collaboration between Iris de Kievith, Atelier Robidoux, and Bureau Bouwkunde. The project was led on behalf of Staatsbosbeheer by John Smits.
