Roof extension for a 1930s residential building

Two neighbours, residents of a beautiful 1930s apartment building, each want to expand their home with a roof extension.

This requires an exemption on zoning plan regulations. In addition, The Hague's aesthetics committee demands that the existing building be treated with great care, a beautiful example of the so-called New The Hague School.

Assuming that more roof extensions will follow in the future, the committee also asks for a principle design for all roof extensions of the entire block.


Both neighbors have very different existing apartments and completely different wishes. It will be a great challenge to realize a suitable addition to the existing homes, and that completely in style with the fantastic 1930s architecture.
