Den Haag, De Verademing

The oldest still operating power plant in the Netherlands Is located in The Hague. Electricity has been generated here since 1906, until the 1950s even enough to supply all of The Hague and Voorburg. The district around the power station has been transformed considerably in recent years. Perhaps the most important and radical change for the residents of the neighborhood was the closure and demolition of the waste incineration plant. Not only has the air became a lot cleaner, a beautiful neighborhood park has been created on the site of the former waste incineration. This spacious, green area in the middle of the city offers a variety of activities for visitors of all ages. ANAE supplied custom tree grids that were placed at two entrances to the park. These triangular tree grids with triangular slots, lasered from Corten steel, are in line with the angular theme of the entire park. The design and layout of the park was conceived by a specially established design team consisting of local residents, future users and members of the Ingenieursbureau Den Haag.
