Mecanoo wins approval for The Grace high-rise ensemble in The Hague

04.07.2022 - Project updates

The Hague Municipal Council has approved the construction of the The Grace, consisting of two towers, one 150 meters high and the other with 180 meters will soon become the tallest high-rise ensemble in the city. The residential concept is based on the growing demand for affordable housing and fostering a sense of community. With over 1400 social, medium and free-sector rental properties and a wide range of communal facilities, The Grace addresses this need. The iconic two-tower ensemble, one reaching 150 meters and the other 180 meters, sits on a seven-storey plinth.

The buildings form a harmonious composition with subtle variations in open and closed facade elements, transparent and soft corners, materialisation and colour. Residents can enjoy a view of the city and, beyond that, of the sea. The plinth features commercial functions, a restaurant and offices on the ground floor, while its upper levels contain housing, offices and communal facilities. Arcades on either side of the complex offer protection against wind and rain, and create sheltered places for restaurant customers and shoppers.

Construction is expected to start this year. The Grace should be completed in 2025.
