Museum Paleis Het Loo wins BNA Award in the category ‘Identity and Iconic Value’

We are honored to announce that Museum Paleis Het Loo has won the BNA Beste Gebouw van het Jaar 2024 in the category: Identiteit & Icoonwaarde!

The jury, headed by Marcia Luyten, recognized the iconic value of the renovation and intervention of Museum Paleis Het Loo. The BNA stated: “The jury is impressed by the daring structural intervention, which is both understated and monumental. The quality is evident. The connection between the palace’s historical aspect and the contemporary extension is beautifully executed—in the floor plan, the water feature, and the exquisite sightlines. The underground space, which could easily have been somber, has acquired a festive character due to the sparkling light, high-quality materials, and unique ceiling lines. From the compass rose in the floor to the wood decorated with orange blossom motifs, every detail has been carefully considered.”

We’d like to congratulate and thank Stichting Paleis Het Loo Nationaal Museum, all collaborators, and the team for this prestigious recognition.
