Ateliers W-119

There are several studios in this building. During the Open Monument Days several studios are open: the studio of Albert Zwaan, Gerhard Lentink and Kim van den Enden (first floor) and the studio of Rinus Blommaert (1st floor).

The studio of Gerhard Lentink is located in a Catholic boys' school built in 1906. A real 'corridor school', symmetrically designed, with classrooms on either side of a corridor. It is an austere building that was completely focused on classroom education. The building lacks its crowning glory: probably in the 1960s the brick balustrade was removed. After restoration, the facade between Gravenstraat and Schrijversstraat is in perfect condition, except for this one balustrade. It remains the artist's sincere wish to have it back as the crowning glory of the building. Several artists' studios are now located in the building. 
In the studio of Gerhard Lentink you can see examples of his monumental work. The wooden sculptures often have a mythological character.
