Welcoming pavilion adds an extra dimension to The Hoge Veluwe National Park
On Friday 21 June 2019 King Willem-Alexander will open the new Park Pavilion in the Hoge Veluwe National Park. The building, designed by the De Zwarte Hond/Monadnock architect combination, offers visitors a warm welcome and adds an extra dimension to their visit.
The pavilion has a restaurant, a park shop and accommodates education and reception areas. in the elongated and curved central space –with a crackling fire at one end on cold days –visitors can admire the light projections on the vaulted ceiling. The new building is a striking landmark in the middle of the forest and is an ideal base for a day out in the Hoge Veluwe. A key point of departure for the architects was that the entire building must form an integral part of the landscape and the park experience. This is not only reflected in the design itself, but also in the collaboration with lighting specialists and interior designers. The entire building reflects the direct connection with the surrounding natural landscape of the Hoge Veluwe.
