Plan for new buildings on Borselen Island


Plan for new buildings on Borselen Island

Kanne, Carl Christiaan

Title Leupe: Grondteekeningen en opstanden van Militaire en Burgerlyke gebouwen te Demerary, van verschillende groote en afmeetingen.

In Heneman’s 1774-1775 and Kanne’s 1779 project plans for Borselen Island and the east bank of the Demerara River, both engineers not only produced maps and ground plans but also architectural designs for the projected new buildings.

This is a proposal for the offices of the commander and the depot master.

Centre right is a design for the military commandant’s house and under that the commander’s residence.
