A harmonious fit
Eurojust will be on the “green” side, and must therefore fit harmoniously into its location. The premises will be constructed facing the original buildings on the side of Johan de Wittlaan. The high-rise portion of the building, with twelve floors, will be on this side. The low-rise portion will protrude into the wooded area, in scale with the buildings directly surrounding it.
The building itself has a light facade of alternating open and closed composite elements, creating a playful, variegated surface. Some glass panels lean forward, others backward, or they are rotated to the left or right. Inside, a double-height lobby with floor-high windows dominates the space. The lower portions of the building offer more privacy. A broad staircase with a garden view descends to the underground floors. The gardens surrounding the new building are designed as a sloping dune landscape harmonising, in both form and ground covering, with the direct, green environment of Zorgvliet.
