Rietveld Architecture Award 2013 - Shortlist PPS Kromhout Barracks
Kromhout Barracks on the shortlist PPS for the Rietveld Architecture Award 2013
The Kromhout barracks (Kromhoutkazerne) have been the new headquarters of the Royal Netherlands Army since 2011. Designing its new base of operations was – logistically speaking – a particularly complex assignment, because we had to accommodate so many different aspects. We ultimately succeeded in creating 3,300 workspaces at the barracks. In addition, there are also 19 hectares of sports, meeting, dining and encampment facilities.
