After large fires in 1347 and 1351, William II, Count of Holland donated the remains of the Gravenzaal to the city’s municipality. A new building was built there.

    Description:

    At the end of the 16th century urban administration had expanded so much that a new town hall was required. The Flemish architect Lieven de Key, who served Haarlem as municipal architect, designed a new façade in 1594 (restored after a fire in 1929). The facade still stands but the rest of the building was redesigned and rebuilt in 1932 by architect CJ Blaauw. At that time the new plaza, the Stadhuisplein, was created.

    Description:

    Currently there is sculpture in the pediment; added in 1957 by sculptor Pieter d'Hont.

    The appearance was determined by the severe facade of Bentheim sandstone, built in neoclassical style, with a temple-style front of four Doric columns. The rear section facing Oudkerkhof / Short Minrebroederstraat was added in the same style, 1844-1847. The City Hall recently had a renovation and addition built by Enric Miralles (2000, the year of his death). [Dutch language Wikipedia]

    Description:

    This is a local courthouse (Paleis van Justitie) for Den Haag; not to be confused with the International Court of Justice at the Peace Palace (Vredespaleis). It sits on the Plein, south of the Mauritshuis. It appears to be a 19th century Renaissance Revival building, but it could be older. (It is not the Renaissance era City Hall).
