Boerderij Tuinzicht
Beekstraat 72
Latex op stucwerk

The Tuinzigt neighbourhood wasn’t established until the late 19th century. The industrial revolution caused a rapid increase of factories and new neighbourhoods with labourer’s homes. Before Tuinzigt became Tuinzigt, the neighbourhood was known as Westerkwartier. The name ‘Tuinzigt’ is most likely a reference to a local farm called ‘Tuinzicht’ (loosely translate: garden view), which used to be situated at the corner of today’s Clematisstraat and Magnoliastraat. The neighbourhood sat at the border of the city with views of farmgrounds. The position and surroundings of the neighbourhood drastically changed when other neighbourhoods, like Westerpark were built.

This Blind Wall is a mix of typography and illustrations that refer to the local heritage and stories of Tuinzigt.
