B30: a building site reportage
The renovation process of the Bezuidenhoutsweg 30 building in The Hague has started and photographer Sebastian van Damme is following the construction site.
The building is a State monument located close by The Hague central station, the city park and the institutional area comprising ministries and governmental buildings.
From the XIX century onwards, the structure has undergone many changes, loosing its identity and not suiting the contemporary working standards anymore. The renovation project is a re-interpretation of the essence of the original design aiming to achieve an open and transparent architecture thanks to new roofs and ceilings, patios and an easy way-finding.
