This is one of my favourite buildings in The Hague. As you walk past it, very grim statues look down on you - a hellish counterpart to the Sint-Jacobskerk right across the street. The actual story behind them is far more earthly. The building was built for insurance company "de Nederlanden van 1845", which would eventually become Nationale-Nederlanden, one of the largest Dutch companies. The statues symbolise those things that you can get insurance for (or against): the fire devil, housing and - of course - death. Symbolism doesn't stop there. The coats of arms on the sides of the sculptures belong to those countries (or cities) where the company had business. At the main entrance, the coats of arms of the Kingdom of the Netherlands sits between a bull, standing for animal husbandry, and a horse, standing for agriculture, two industries that rely on fire insurance. They hold the coats of arms of The Hague and Zutphen - where the owner was from. A head on the corner is immortalised screaming "Fire!". The building was designed by the famous Dutch architect H.K. Berlage, which explains both the current name (Berlagegebouw) and the obvious similarities with the Stock Exchange Building in Amsterdam. It was finished in 1909 #berlagegebouw #hkberlage #berlage #dutcharchitecture #architecturephotography #denederlandenvan1845 #thehague #denhaag #zuidholland #holland #nederland #netherlands

'At the gates of Rijksmuseum' Architect: Pierre Cuypers Oficially opened in 1885 On both the inside and the outside, the building was richly decorated with references to #dutchart history. Another contest was held for these decorations. The winners were B. van Hove and J.F. Vermeylen for the sculptures, G. Sturm for the tile tableaus and painting and W.F. Dixon for the stained glass. #hipsighttrip #dutcharchitecture #amsterdamarchitecture #amsterdambuildings #renaissancestyle #gothicstyle #artnouveau #artnouveauarchitecture #architecturephotography #historyofarchitecture #historyofart #bartvanhove #vermeylen #georgsturm #williamfrancisdixon #williamdixon #ornamentation #minimal_experience #minimalmood #ad_magazine #streetsofamsterdam #worldarchitecture #worldtraveler #pierrecuypers #amsterdambikes

Another unposted pic from Amsterdam: visitare questa città è stata un’avventura meravigliosa. La abbiamo girata in meno di 2 giorni, in compagnia del freddo inverno olandese. Per quanto mi sia immensamente piaciuto questo breve viaggio, vorrei tornarci con più calma, magari in primavera, giusto in tempo per la fioritura dei tulipani 🌷✨ #myamsterdam #amsterdam #travelholic #amsterdamcanals #holland #visitamsterdam #travelgram #travelgirl #dutcharchitecture #architecture #cuteplace #housedesign #inspohome #amsterdamview #visitholland #travellingthroughtheworld #wanderlust #instagood #pixelcomit #prettylittleiiinspo #inspo #inspogirl #inspocafe #travelmood #amsterdamshots #europe #amsterdamlife #travelamsterdam #netherlands
Die Port van Cleve, a restaurant and brewery in central Amsterdam, Noord-Holland (Netherlands), with a Dutch-Renaissance-style façade added during renovations in 1888 to designs of Isaac Gosschalk. It is now part of the hotel that uses the same name. / Le restaurant et brasserie Die Port van Cleve au centre-ville d’Amsterdam, Holland Septentrionale (Pays-Bas) avec une façade du style renaissance-néerlandais ajouté dans les renovations en 1888 aux dessins d’Isaac Gosschalk.

Walking along the streets or canals of a Dutch city feels like being gently hugged by rows and rows of reddish brick. I call this the 'terracotta embrace'. And no wonder brick is so pervasive, as the Dutch soil is particularly rich in clay deposits. One architectural style that sought to make the most out of this humble construction material was the 'Amsterdam School' (1910-1930). Heavily influenced by the housing needs of the working class and aspiring to provide them with an aesthetically constructive environment, architects like Michel de Klerk strove to elevate the simple brick into elegant and evocative structures. 'Het Schip' (The Ship), as was commonly called by its neighbours, is one such elaborate structure, combining brick colours, brick patterns, curved shapes and interspersed sculpture. The apartment complex was commissioned by the housing cooperative Eigen Haard (a hearth of our own) and de Klerk finished the designs in 1919. #hetschip #museumhetschip #micheldeklerk #amsterdamschool #amsterdamseschool #dutcharchitecture #architecturephotography #modernarchitecture #expressionistarchitecture #brick #brickandmortar #terracotta #northholland #noordholland #holland #nederland #netherlands
#latergram ⠀ Pop and cultural venue Metropool .⠀ The three-storey building contains two pop auditoria, a grand café, practice rooms and offices. On the first floor, the small and large auditoria are two basic hermetic concrete boxes that can operate simultaneously thanks to the box-within-a-box idea. The foyer separating them accesses their public areas and doubles as a noise barrier.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ photo by Jannes Linders⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #benthemphouwelarchitects #benthemcrouwel #architects #architecture #achitecture #archidaily #archilovers #archilife #archidesign #achitecture_hunter #architecturephotography #architecturedaily #light #concerthall #culture #popculture #culturalvenue #concerthallarchitecture #musicarchitecture #finearchitecture #dutcharchitecture #lightarchitecture
Kubuswoningen, Cube Houses 🏘 🔶🔶🔶 by Dutch architect Piet Blom, 1980s. High density, high optimized housing with common spaces at the ground floor, this iconic design acts a micro cosmo within the city of Rotterdam, resembling a sort a of housing forest. The Cube houses are only one of the many examples that have crowned Rotterdam as an open museum of modernism and contemporary architecture. As we know, the city was massively reconstructed after the 2WW and fiercely took the chance to become a canvas for design experimentation. However, on a larger scale, it would be interesting to investigate what made possible for these architectural interventions to bloom up, and to reveal how much the newly urbanized landscape actually relied on pre-existent patterns, for example the typical Dutch polders. • • • • #urban_cosmography #architecture #architettura #dutcharchitecture #rotterdam #kubuswoningen #cubehouses #archilovers #archilover #architecturephotography #pietblom #housing #netherlands #contemporaryarchitecture #citylife #city #urban #visitrotterdam #igersnetherlands #igersrotterdam
