Cultural-historical research and valuation
The Fischery (De Visserij) was the first purchase of Natuurmonumenten, the Dutch equivalent of the British National Trust, in the beginning of the 20th century. This gives a tinge of nostalgia to this beautiful and picturesque place on the shore of the Naarder lake (Naardermeer) A set of buildings which started life centuries ago as a house, outbuildings and smallholding for a fisherman and his family.
Natuurmonumenten desired to converse these cultural-historical valuable buildings and their outdoor space to another use, because of their policy to declare this side of the Naardermeer into a quit area for wildlife. They asked Monique Wolak to execute a cultural-historical research, a valuation, recommendations for the future and a design for the future outdoor space, which was a great honour she gladly did for this inspiring spot.
Bart van Aller was responsible for the building archaeological research.
