Plan of Huis ten Bosch

Plan of Huis ten Bosch

Although the plans for this palace, with its central hall, seem Italian in inspiration, no single influence dominates; instead, Pieter Post combines a cruciform hall—as in Palladio’s Villa Barbaro at Maser or Scamozzi’s Villa Badoer at Peraga—and an octagonal domed interior, exemplified by Scamozzi’s Villa Rocca Pisani at Lonigo, near Vicenza.
