The Posthoornkerk was designed over 150 years ago by one of the Netherlands’ most prominent architects P.J.H. Cuypers. Due to the decline of local church attendance in the 1970's, the church was threatened by demolition. Fortunately, Stichting de Posthoornkerk rescued the building from destruction and nowadays the church’s middle aisle is used for all sorts of activities including receptions, workshops, presentations and wedding ceremonies.
To divide the space up, Stadsherstel Amsterdam N.V. and structural engineer Remco van Dam commissioned Espero to install a Sonico 110 panel wall. This wall is particularly special, as it features a HPL Westag getalit digital print, which – when the wall is closed – portrays an exact image of the church’s interior which is concealed behind the wall at that moment.
