Underground extension

Paleis Het Loo has a new masterpiece: an underground extension with a floor area of 5000 m2. From 2018 to 2023 the forecourt of Paleis het Loo was a deep construction pit. It was a huge project, with technical challenges and an astonishing feat of planning. Hundreds of specialists, both staff of Paleis Het Loo and external contractors, worked on the architectural masterpiece. Every detail was meticulously planned, documented, executed and adjusted. Pure craftsmanship.
