Entry Description

The Hoge Veluwe National Park is not only a 5,400-hectare nature reserve, but also the home of Berlage’s famous hunting lodge and the Kröller-Müller Museum. Visitors can enjoy nature, art and architecture. The Park Pavilion now adds a restaurant, a gift shop and education and reception areas.

Like the building itself, the interior forms an alliance with the surrounding landscape. The central space extends along the glass wall, a large ‘lounge’ with a stylish, central staircase and, at the end, a large fireplace. Nine chandeliers project a magical pattern on the vaulted ceiling.


De Zwarte Hond is a design bureau for architecture, urban design and research, founded in 1985, with offices in Groningen, Rotterdam and Cologne. The company is made up of some 100 people: architects, urbanists and other creatives, who work on projects characterised by blending in, yet being special.
