Duinoord history

The building plans for Duinoord were initiated in 1891. The start was a competition for the best facade design. The winning design was a Neo Renaissance complex of several homes with turrets, gables and bay windows. This still stands on the corner of Sweelinckplein and Banstraat.

Duinoord is built in a diverse and playful way with Sweelinckplein in the heart. The name “Duinoord” relates to “Dekkersduin”, the dune it was built on. This makes Duinoord one of the areas in The Hague that has sand as stable soil type.
