Paleis Het Loo renovation continues

The renovation and reconstruction of Paleis Het Loo started over a year ago. Within that time extensive groundwork began to make room for the new underground entrance of the museum. On his latest visit, photographer Sebastian van Damme captured the instances from the ongoing construction.

Continuing a series of advanced building techniques, the latest step of the expansion involved pouring and curing the concrete underwater. In this way, the pressure of water ensured that the concrete structure is without tears and leaks. Explore the full photo report below and click here to keep up with the ongoing video series following the construction progress.
