The centuries-old, landmark chestnut tree in Langstraat, in the centre of Wassenaar, needed to be preserved. Provast has built a new library (1,400 m2), including a cinema room and a reading terrace, around the old tree. Above the library you can find 32 exclusive owner-occupied apartments, including 2 spacious penthouses. The apartments are adjacent to a spec- tacular inner garden that was built on the roof of the library and is only accessible for residents. The plan further includes 640 m2 of retail space. A private parking garage is located underneath the complex.
