The Dutch island Texel has a long and rich history of beachcombing. Beachcombers rummage the beaches for everything from wood to gold. Because of that Texel has a museum that tells their stories.
KAAP SKIL Museum is designed by Mecanoo Architects and was openend in 2012. It’s made of glas and recycled wood like the old beachcombers would have done. The facade is shaped like the local houses and the peaks of waves so that it complements its surroundings.
