Indigo – Palace Noordeinde
At the request of Borealis Hotel Group, Mulderblauw transformed a monumental building in The Hague to a luxurious boutique hotel. The first Hotel Indigo of the Netherlands is now situated in this historical building.
detail for craft
The building has many characteristic elements and artisanal details.
The property dates back to 1884 and has a rich history as agency of the Dutch Bank. Many original elements, such as the main safe with high-rise safe door and stained-glass windows, have been preserved. These are examples of essential elements that were given special attention during the design process.
Due to the former function as the Dutch Bank and the many historical elements, this building is a perfect location for the first Indigo Hotel in the Netherlands. One of the stories that appeals to the imagination, is the one that the Dutch stock of gold was once saved in the main safe of the building.
The construction consists of three parts that were once (1925-1927) molded into one by adding a whole new art deco style façade. The façades on the Heulstraat, Noordeinde and Paleisstraat are protected cityscape. Nevertheless, Mulderblauw has been granted permission to recreate a historic entrance on the side of the Noordeinde.
At the rear part of the building, we created a two-storey volume. This addition is made of a bronze coloured curtain wall, which is in line with the existing bronze window frames.
The exceptionally high floor height on the ground floor makes it possible to include entresol rooms in the design. These rooms are featured with a mezzanine, where the sleeping area is situated on the higher part and looks out over the entire room.
Due to the characteristic elements, the differences in height and the overall exceptional construction, the transformation was a rather complex one. Construction of the hotel was completed in February of 2018. The property is now accessible to the public again, after years of vacancy.
