The large-scale renovation of the Trippenhuis complex was completed recently. The Trippenhuis was designed by Justus Vingboons and was built between 1660 and 1662 for the brothers Louis and Hendrick Trip. The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) has been housed there since 1812. The complex has been transformed over the years with various insights. The design of Office Winhov for the new reception area consists of an enfilade of rooms and halls, extending from the historic entrance in the Trippenhuis to the renovated auditorium in the garden at the rear of the complex. In the new part, colors and design motifs from the historic building return in a contemporary manner. The facades on the street side and the courtyard are clad with cast, bronze panels; a reference to the'metal trade' business of the original residents.
At the end of July The Parool published an article about the transformaton of the Trippenhuis. Attached the online article (written in Dutch).
Design proposal (runner up) by Office Winhov for the new tower to replace the original clock tower, demolished around 1980.
"What has been sealed in recent years has been opened up again and nuanced, the glass facade shines and splatters like before."
