National monument Twenthe Centrum Almelo opened
On Friday 19 October 2012, the national monument Twenthe Centrum was opened. The Twenthe Centrum was built between 1918 and 1940 in several phases as a steam spinning mill for textile manufacturer Ten Cate. The original design is by architect Arend Beltman, a member of a well-known family of architects from Twente.
Commissioned by Snippe Projecten, IAA Architecten has drawn up a transformation plan to redesignate this monument as a collective business building for various commercial functions. For example, there is a health centre with various medical functions, a pharmacy, a day-care centre for children, gastronomy and a work place of the UWV and the Municipal Social Service. In addition, 70 m2 units are available for various companies.
