National Archives Building Restoration
Jakarta, Indonesia
Restoration of an historically significant building, built as a residence by Dutch general Reiner de Klerk in 1760. The project was financed and offered to the people of Indonesia by a group of over 60 Dutch enterprises and institutions as a sign of friendship between the two countries. A main part of the investment went towards restructuring the drainage system, waterproofing the roof and walls, and restoring floorings and finishings.
