The Veerhuis, located on the Schiemond, once served as the departure point for the ferry service between the north shore and the shipyard of the Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij.
Now, the Droom en Daad Foundation is developing plans to realise a house for writers in the Veerhuis. A place on the Maas where the craft of writing is celebrated and where everyone who wants to (learn to) write is welcome.
The monument from 1917 was designed by architect H.A.J. Baanders. Architects Donna van Milligen Bielke and Ard de Vries were engaged for the thorough renovation.
