Washing and changing room
Built in 1936, national monument
It was heavy, dirty work in some of the departments. In the press shop, for instance, grenades were oiled with graphite mixed with oil. Fortunately, employees could clean themselves up, to some extent, in one of the washrooms on site. There were 700-plus lockers in the locker room. Because there were so many entrances, employees could get quickly to their workstation.
This building is unique for its curved construction with three light strips in the roof. Plus, it is the only building made entirely from wood. When it was renovated, three washing troughs were retained. The toilet was on the north side; only the floor of this remains. Of the bicycle park on the south side, only a wall and the floor are still there.
Artist Jasper Krabbé now has his studio here.
