New location proposed for Eurojust

Published: 16 December 2010 Modified: 04 January 2011

The Municipality of The Hague and the State have offered Eurojust a new location in the International Zone. The proposed spot is on the Jan Willem Frisolaan near the World Forum where a high school (Maris College) is currently located.

Eurojust is a European Union organisation and is currently located in two buildings in the Binckhorst area of The Hague. The aim of Eurojust is to improve the fight against serious cross-border crime by facilitating the optimal coordination of action for investigations and prosecutions.

If the European Union in Brussels gives the project a green light and the State and Eurojust sign a cooperation agreement, work on the new building’s design can already begin at the beginning of next year. The building should fit in with the neighbourhood and have a large green outdoor space. The new design plans for approximately 18,000 square metres of office space and a parking garage.

Plans call for construction on the building to start in the first quarter of 2014 and for the organisation to take up operations there by the end of 2015.

Zwarts & Jansma new light urban rail link between The Hague and Rotterdam

Randstadrail is a new light urban rail network between The Hague and Rotterdam, with a partially existing network being supplemented with new sections. In the centre of The Hague, the need for a new section resulted in a viaduct being built over the entire 400m metres length of the Beatrixlaan, with a new station halfway.

The design process was started by listening carefully to all the stakeholders. Also multidisciplinary workshops generated usable information as input for the design. A principle that turned out very important for all stakeholders was that the new structure wouldn’t compromise the social - and traffic safety.

The space-frame tubular construction of the viaduct is constructed from a skeleton structure of rings of mild-steel strips with a diameter of about 10 metres, interconnected by diagonally set tubes to form an open tube structure covering large spans with relatively few columns at street level. By choosing a transparent skeleton both the street level as well as the surrounding offices are able to catch the maximum amount of sunlight and with hardly any visual obstruction at eye level, social - safety and traffic safety are not compromised..

Advancement was made, not so much by designing the structure as a piece of architecture, but by organising a smart process so the ‘place of flows’, a building typology with a totally different rhythm as its surrounding, became an integral part of the main structure of the district. Moreover, since the opening of the station it has become a well-known landmark in The Hague as a striking construction that gives the area a clear identity and provides the displaced and bare Beatrixkwartier with the much desired urbanity.

With the ‘fishnet stocking’ defining the elongated space, this makes it a superb example of how architecture can give meaning to a useless space.

New building for dance, music and conservatory

Published: 14 September 2012 Modified: 01 November 2012

The Hague will get a new cultural centre for music, dance, events and gatherings called the Spuiforum. The new building will be constructed on the Spuiplein where the Dr Anton Philipszaal and Lucent Danstheater now stand. Both buildings are in urgent need of a makeover.

The Nederlands Dans Theater, Residentie Orkest and Royal Conservatoire will all make their home in the new Spuiforum . Professionals, upcoming talent and amateurs will work side by side and together under one roof.
Spuiforum

Building costs
The plans for the Spuiforum are significant in that The Hague Municipal Executive has decided to make a large-scale investment in the city. The construction and realisation of the building is budgeted at € 181 million, which is € 80 million less than in the original plan. The municipality will finance 75% of the total construction costs.
Entrance on the Spui

Plans for a new building were presented in 2010 but they appeared to be too costly. After consulting the Municipal Council, the Municipal Executive adapted the plans. The adapted plans were submitted to the Municipal Council on 13 September 2012. The new plans mean lower costs, more cooperation between the cultural organisations and integration with the Royal Conservatoire. The building will also be turned around so that the entrance will now be on the Spui.

Municipal Council
The Hague Municipal Council will take a definite vote on the plans in November 2012. Thereafter the architectural design will be finalised. Residents of The Hague are invited to voice their opinion on the building’s design.

Contest
The design for the Spuiforum is the result of an international competition held in 2010 among 54 architectural bureaus. Following a number of rounds in which residents of The Hague were also involved, Neutelings Riedijk Architecten was selected as the winning design. This bureau also designed the MAS in Antwerp. ‘Spuiforum’ is now the project name for the entire area.

And from NDT.nl:
Alderman Marnix Norder (City Development, Housing and Integration): “The Hague, the international city of freedom and justice, is an ambitious city. This is a city of more than 500.000 residents in one of the busiest regions of the country. The Hague has become a city to which people want to come for its shopping facilities, to meet each other and to go out. This has been made possible through a series of large changes which have made the city centre more lively and attractive. This started with the building of the new Town Hall and the library. Central Station is shortly to become a beautiful entrance for the city. The Grote Marktstraat and the Nieuwe Haagse Passage have been transformed from grey and miserable to vibrant and vital, and a place in which businesses are enthusiastic about becoming established. The Wijnhaven Quarter has taken shape with spectacular residential and office towers. Now it is the turn of the area around the Spuiplein: the Spui Forum. With the building of the Spui Forum a new Spuiplein will also be created. A smaller and more cosy square with terraces for relaxing and for meeting each other.”

Nice job on the train station, and the light rail viaduct at the De Monarch projects is incredible!
