A PRIVATE PLACE IN THE HEART OF THE HAGUE
The Benoordenhout area of The Hague is one of its most beautiful districts, yet lies very close to the heart of this fascinating city. Ruychrocklaan border, the beautiful tranquil Clingendael Park and the Bosjes van Zanen. Two of the key featurs of Clingendael are its stately home and its famous Japanese Garden which dates from over 100 years ago.
Access to the Bosjes and thereby Clingendael is via a gate located within 100 m of the property. The area around Ruychrocklaan 238 also has many residences of great architectural siginificance, dating back to the early part of the last century. The Ruychrocklaan itself features a number of villas designed by the New Hage School architect Co Brandes. On the parallel Van Ouwenlaan is a pair of villas designed by the world-renowned modernist architect and cabinetmaker Gerrit Rietveld. However, it is with its neighbouring villa, on the Van Soutelandelaan, that Ruychrocklaan 238 is most intimately involved.
This neighbouring villa was built in 1937 as the home of the noted architect and advocate of the New Dutch Functionalism, J.B. van Loghem. The design of the new building nr 238 drew inspiration from the Van Loghem villa which has since become a listed building. The context of 'new build' has been reflected in the choice of building materials - it features white stucco exterior, glazed brick walls, steel window frams and an open living space.
