We are proud of the opening of the Station Post Building The Hague!
Today the historic Station Post Building in The Hague was officially opened by Mayor Jan van Zanen after restoration by KCAP and interior design by Kraaijvanger Architects. The national monument welcomes the Dutch postal service provider PostNL as their new headquarters and offers additional co-working spaces for other users.
The main challenge was to renovate and renew the shell and structure of the building, preserving the authentic design of the timeless building while creating an interactive work environment for the 21st century, also able to cope with the changes in work life caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The interior answers the client's need for a new work environment that serves flexible collaboration, flexible use, and employee and guest well-being. These principles have been translated into a social landscape; an environment for working, research and development, focused on exchange and connection; thinking, being, doing, learning, feeling and celebrating together.
Thanks to many sustainable and energy-saving solutions and the application of circular principles by both reusing existing materials where possible and designing and building new elements in a remountable way, the renovated Station Post building has been transformed into a future-proof office building with respect for its past. The result is a powerful collaboration of the existing architecture with its constructive expression and a new internal structure. An environment where people feel at home. A place where you want to be, rather than where you have to be, like home.
