In april 2013 Café De Vooruitgang in Eindhoven was severely damaged by a fire that started in the kitchen and spread to the attic. The devastation was huge. In comakership with owner Debuut VAN AKEN renovated the historic building on the market square in Eindhoven.
The interior breathes the atmosphere of New York. In order to realize this, a steel staircase was constructed against one wall over the entire height. It also connects two floors. Behind the staircase is a collage made from old apothecary cabinets, filing cabinets and other beautiful trouvailles. This makes the whole wall come to life.
