De Oriënt in The Hague is under construction
De Oriënt residential complex for the Transvaal neighbourhood in The Hague is currently under construction and will reach completion by the end of the year.
The complex is comprised of 76 three- or four-storey single-family dwellings, 16 apartments with lift access and 11 smaller porch-access dwellings. The interior layout of all the units is flexible. At street level there is 650 m2 of commercial space. The internal courtyard contains two semi-public courtyards, at street level and on the first floor, with parking for 150 cars underneath.
The project’s commissioner, Era Bouw BV, wanted it to fulfil the demands of The Hague’s Hindustani-Surinamese community for suitable housing and workspaces in the Transvaal neighbourhood. Highly characteristic are the specially designed four-metre-high metal pinnacles, which in combination with the cupolas and the glazed brickwork contribute to the project’s oriental appearance.
