Mosa - Unique ceramic facade enriches The Hague skyline

A dull ministerial office complex in The Hague has been turned into a warm, metropolitan multipurpose building due to its ceramic facade. The most striking aspect of the building is the sand-coloured facade that has been finished with custom-made tiles from Mosa, with which the architect makes reference to the beautiful city behind the dunes.

Wonderful woven patterns

"The ceramic facade entices you to look at the building," explains architect Jeroen Geurst. "The closer you get to the Wijnhavenkwartier, the more there is to experience. From a distance, the building appears to be the same shade all over, but on closer inspection, you can see the delightful horizontal and vertical woven patterns of the tiles. Each tile has unique colour nuances - and it's these details that make the building so interesting."

Quick facade construction

The building's head contractor, Heijmans, and investors opted for Mosa because the company's tiles are durable, strong and easy to maintain. Heijmans also had to complete the work quickly because of the lack of space for storage and construction in the inner city. With the prefab ceramic cladding elements and the ventilated-facade system, a quick and clean construction is possible in any urban area.
