States Building of the Central Government of the Netherlands Antilles
After a very competitive, and lengthy selection procedure between an international pre-selected group of architects, AOB was awarded in 1991 by the Central Government of the Netherlands Antilles with the prestigious commission to design the new States Building (Staten gebouw) on Wilhelminaplein, Willemstad, Curaçao.
This project is the crowning of our Trias Politica portfolio, since we already had been entrusted with the designs of the Legislative- and Execute Power (see Court of Justice).
Respecting the historical architecture of Willemstad, we avoided an overpowering design for the States Building and decided to group the several functions of the Preparatory Power in separate, interconnecting buildings consisting of two, three and four storeys respectively. Also an underground parking for 200 cars was seen to.
Unfortunately, due to lack of sufficient funds and also through the disintegration of the Netherlands Antilles, the design will not come to fruition.
