PUBLIQUE – bistro 2.0 is designer Robert Kolenik’s contemporary vision of a tried and tested concept.
In October, the Publique Restaurant opened its doors on one of the most exciting squares in The Hague’s vibrant city centre.
The brothers Casper and Sjoerd Smits and their cousin Maurits Jonkman, all experienced restaurateurs, asked Robert Kolenik to design a stylish but accessible version of that much-loved French classic, the bistro.
The warm copper colour in the stained glass windows was chosen as the guiding principle for the design.

Home is where the art is
Capturing the character of Dalí, Jugendstil forms, Spanish facades and nautical life in one villa.
The ‘Villa Dalí’ clients asked for a very personal house which would reflect their passions. They are nautical minded and have a love of art, sculptures and especially the work of Salvador Dalí. During the initial design discussions 123DV architecture were also showed pictures of ancient Spanish architecture. They were fascinated by the closed white stucco facades and metal fences in Jugendstil design. So the challenge was to combine in one villa the beautiful Jugendstil forms, the closed facades, the treasures of the diving world and the unique works of the artist Dalí.

In sharp contrast to the basic rectangular geometry of its surroundings, our design proposes a structure punctuated by fluid horizontal louvres, which seem to move when graced by light and shade – issuing a playful invitation to enter – moving upwards to culminate in a gracious curving roof-line.

The location of the Anna van Beuren tower will be the new Anna van Beuren square, located directly next to the Centraal Station of The Hague. The situation of the building, alongside the under construction Centraal Station, the recently complete ‘New Babylon’ housing and mixed use complex, and a large underground parking garage, will further serve to strengthen and unify this highly visible site in the center of the city. The tower will take the center place on this new square, incorporating student housing and various gastronomic and retail outlets, encouraging ‘interiority’.
We feel that a school should be like a small town, with streets, squares and houses. A town where one meets, learns, plays and discovers. A school as a town where children learn to peacefully coexist and grow.
