Benno Tempel

Gemeentemuseum director on his The Hague

Although he now lives in Amsterdam for practical reasons, our royal city was the beloved home of Benno Tempel for four years. Besides gazing within the walls of this building designed by Berlage, he also loves admiring other interiors. And he also enjoys everything The Hague has to offer with a passion.
