The Hofhouse restaurant opened in June 2017 as one of the commercial elements that occupy the plinth of the Rijnstraat 8, the new Rijkskantoor in The Hague, transformed into a multi-ministry building by OMA. In the 1000m2 open space of Hofhouse 3 large counters house 6 different units, each serving a variety of foods from different parts of the world. In between the units, two additional pop-ups have been built who's occupants change a few times a year. A 12 meter long bar stretches along the glass facade, flanked by the two large planters holding the characteristic palm trees.
