Park Pavilion as finalist at the IFI DDA awards

The Park Pavilion The Hoge Veluwe National Park, designed by De Zwarte Hond and MONADNOCK, has been selected as a finalist for the IFI DDA award in the category “Humanitarian”. Finalists have been at the forefront of interior architecture/design practice with their built work; contributing at the highest level to raising the bar of design innovation and excellence.

The Park Pavilion adds an extra experience to the De Hoge Veluwe National Park. It has been made a natural part of the landscape and the park experience. The collaboration with lighting and interior designers (Beersnielsen and Vos Interieur and Piet Hein Eek) was essential. A large glass façade over the entire length offers a magnificent view of the beautiful surroundings. Behind the glass wall is the central space, a large ‘living room’ with a stylish staircase in the centre and a fireplace at the end.

Above the visitors’ heads, the vaulted ceiling extends the entire length of the space. Nine chandeliers project a magical pattern onto the ceiling, based on an algorithm of the sun shining through the leaves.

The winner will be announced on 22 February.
