Claus en Kaan Architecten create the winning design for the National Military Museum, The Netherlands
Nationaal Militair Museum – The plan submitted by the Heijmans consortium has been selected as the winning design for the construction of the new National Military Museum in Soesterberg.
The consortium, a collaborative venture between Heijmans, Claus en Kaan Architecten, H+N+S Landschapsarchitecten and Kossmann.dejong Exhibition Architects, was given the unique assignment of not only designing a new building, but also the surrounding landscape and the entire museological design.
The new museum was commissioned by the Ministry of Defence in order to tell the past, present and future stories of the armed forces to a wide audience. The collections from the Military Aviation Museum in Soesterberg and the Army Museum in Delft will be combined and exhibited in this museum. The new museum complex will be situated on the grounds of the former air base in Soesterberg.
The museum is expected to be complete by the third quarter of 2014.
