Re-interpreting a national heritage site

The governmental building B30 in The Hague was first conceived by Daniël Knuttel in 1917, and will shortly become the new accommodation of the Dutch planning offices.

The renovation and extension on the original design led by Dikkie Scipio is aiming to achieve an open yet monumental architecture thanks to new openings, gardens and an artistic intervention on the atrium’s floor. Karin Borghouts gives us an insight of the building currently in its delivery phase.
