The new building Polaris will strengthen the far-reaching civil and military integration between Air Traffic Control the Netherlands – LVNL – and the Dutch Airforce. Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed a building in which both cultures can come together and improve collaboration. To accommodate growth in trainings equipment, including advanced radar and tower simulations, the building accommodates the new training centre and operational room of LVNL. In case of an emergency, the LVNL, operational room also functions as a full backup for the air traffic control system. All functions have been organized around the large atrium, which is connected to the existing LVNL complex through a striking bridge.
