In The Hague, Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed the new Headquarters for the Dutch National Police. The transformation of the original building resulted in a flexible, light and transparent building that is compliant with strict security requirements. The centre of the building contains special functions such as the press room, the National Briefing Room, the conference centre, the foyers and the four-storey plant wall. In the periphery the various team offices and individual offices are located, where glass walls with subtle prints provide openness, privacy and daylight. Based on an extensive assessment of existing materials EHA proposed a circular approach and reused as much as possible, from complete toilet rooms to kitchens and installation parts.
