POINTING MORTARS FOR THE FAÇADES OF THE ROYAL PALACE IN AMSTERDAM

 

The Royal Palace in Amsterdam has a rich history. Built in the Golden Age by architect Jacob van Kampen, it originally served as the Town Hall of the city. In 1808 King Louis Napoleon appropriated the Town Hall and from that moment on it served as Royal Palace.

In 1813 the Amsterdam Royal Palace became the reception palace of the royal family. The restoration of the exterior walls was started at the beginning of the 21st century.

THE CONTRIBUTION: SPECIAL POINTING MORTAR

Jahn International was directly involved in the modelling and the supply of special pointing mortars for the exterior walls. The use of the pointing mortars contributed significantly to the restoration of the façades of the Amsterdam Royal Palace in their original condition.
