Ector Hoogstad Architects has transformed De Artillerie, an office complex on the Nieuwe Uitleg in The Hague built in a historicising style in the 1990s, into the new police headquarters. “De Artillerie is a relatively new building, many features of which are still usable,” said Joost Ector, director of the Rotterdam-based architectural practice. “It has an interesting structure with a spatial quality that was completely neglected in the original design. Thanks to a number of substantial interventions it has been transformed into a pleasantly spacious, light and airy building with just the right atmosphere for a police headquarters.”

This vacation house is located on a slope surrounded by olive groves, with the equisite view at the Brački kanal and the city of Split.  The slope’s orientation to the north resulted in the spatial disposition and the two-sided orientation of all the living spaces and the required use of pitched roofs initiated the two-part division with the monopitched roofs and the flat roof in-between.
