National Military Museum in Soesterberg


From early design to final completion of the buildings, Peutz have contributed with regard to building physics, acoustics, fire safety and sustainability. Worth mentioning is a fairly elaborate research we conducted into the possibility of making this museum with almost complete glass facades. We studied how much daylight could be admitted in relation to the sensitivity of specific museum objects which has led to the present layout of the exhibit. The large roof with its overhang provides shade during summer while preservering the magnificent view from the museum to the outside landing strip and natural environment of the former military airbase.
