For Dutch company Ymere, illustrator Stefan Glerum imagined a 18 meters high fresco for the facade of a high stained glass cathedral in Amsterdam. On the last 4th November, two giant high stain glass was revealed in a residential area featuring 72 apartments. In an expressive and colorful spirit, the design takes the history of the neighborhood and refers to old pools of the city, an animals shelter, Oostergasfabriek (a 19th century gas factory) and several personal stories belonging to the local story.
The building was designed by Heren 5 Architects.
