The Hague Municipal Council approved the zoning plan for the controversial new cultural centre in The Hague’s city centre. The new building will be constructed on the site of the Dr Anton Philipszaal and Lucent Danstheater, which will be torn down.
An amount of € 181 million has been earmarked for the project. The budget will also cover a temporary facility for the cultural organisations. The Spuiforum was designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architecten.
The building is crowned with a large cupola hall for all kinds of public events. The filigrain exo-skeleton gives the façade a refined and festive expression.
