The Gown / Archipelontwerpers

The Baljurk-project (baljurk = evening-dress, ball gown), designed by Archipelontwerpers, is situated in the centre of The Hague, next to the old Passage. The construction of the Passage in 1882 has transformed the urban tissue. Before this transformation there used to be a meandering transition between the two streets Kettingstraat and the Achterom, cause by the fact that the Achterom used to be a modest stream. This organic flow is unique in the context of The Hague’s rectangular lay-out. By consequence of the construction of the Passage this smooth transition was converted into a straight angle. The Baljurk-project is exactly placed on this corner — via ArchDaily
