City Hall of the Hague

City Hall of the Hague


The Hague, Netherlands (NL)
The City Hall and Central Library is easily spotted due to its enormous size and unmistakable Richard Meier palette - white, and only white.

Another distinguishable trait of the building is the large open atrium space. The building complex houses the council chamber, marriage hall, public library, municipal offices, leased offices, and some shops on the street level. There are benches inside the atrium space for people to sit around. The atrium space has a glass roof that was carefully designed to allow sunlight in but at the same time to control the temperature of the space.

The City Hall and Central Library is part of the redevelopment program for that particular part of the city center. Nearby this building, there are many more new structures established or in progress as part of this redevelopment program.
