A creation of Dutch studio Barbara Vos and studio TILIA, the Paard van Troje remodel gave new life to the iconic concert hall.

Perhaps the most cutting edge facet of this renovation is the fact that it was crowd-funded. "Through buying a share, the public could not only participate in the refurbishment but could also become a permanent part of that refurbishment," say the architects of community support. Each donor was compensated with having their name displayed on a glass installation by the bar.

With the prominence of Kickstarter, it is refreshing to see that tendency of crowd-sourced funding of the arts and their venues are gaining momentum. Along with philanthropic aspect, the space boasts a modern industrial interior that makes the Paard van Troje remodel quite outstanding.
