Although the exterior of this building dating from 1878 are quite a sight, the interior is even more worthwhile to look at. The vestibule, in which the stairs and floor are made of white marble, ends in a spacious entrance hall with the original, inlaid, Italian natural stone floor. The stairs are beautifully decorated and have a spacious ‘stair well’. Nearly all other spaces have been amply provided with original details, e.g. the beautiful, high ornamental ceilings and the various mantelpieces, one of which has a monumental painting in the 19th century ‘witje style’.
Despite these classic characteristics the layout of the building is functional and all spaces of the building have day light in abundance. As a result all spaces, from basement to storage division can be used optimally. The outside of the building and the interior was thoroughly renovated in 2007 and 2009.
