Hague City Hall, Netherlands
Rudy Uytenhaak Architects an Amsterdan-based design studio have designed the Hague City Hall. The ultra modern building can be found in Leyweg, Netherlands.
According to the architects: The ‘second town hall’ of The Hague, the municipal office on the Leyweg is a signal for the environment and a catalyst for renewal of the district. This ambition, expressed in height and an appealing open form is accompanied by a sense of scale and detail.
Administrative services, library and housing meet around the contemporary Dutch office. Clever use of both new and “proven” building techniques that give a result of an expressive form, surprisingly spacious, flexible, functional and durable. The colour of the facade with white beautiful Norwegian marble on a multifaceted relief builds on the spirit of the place with the modern optimism of Dudok unfolds within the atrium and the logical core of the problem: a center for citizens and government.
