264. Den Haag-Groote Markt

Dear Dudley,

This building was raised in the Hague in 1928. The
facades consist almost entirely of glass. The parapets
between the horizontal frame line are made out of a
luminous material in which advertisements can be
displayed. The staircase on the corner has walls made
of glass blocks. The building possess a sculptural
composition reminiscent of the Dutch artistic movement
known as De Stijl or neoplasticism.
