Photographer Dominique Panhuysen continues her periodical visits to the Paleis Het Loo construction site. In the latest photo report, she takes us through the rapidly progressing Bassecourt – the underground entrance facility of the museum.
The concrete structure of the underground extension is already showing outlines of the grand foyer and the exposition rooms.
The steel structure covering these spaces is also being put in place, and will later be covered by glass surfaces and a pond.
Meanwhile, the monumental facades of the side wings and the Corps de Logis are currently being supported by temporary construction that enables the underground connection with the Bassecourt facilities.
