More information

Background information:
Built as accommodation for two working-class families in the period around 1910. More than 100 years later it is still inhabited, although some of the houses are no longer used as downstairs and upstairs apartments because the two have been converted into one house. Other copies now offer accommodation to students. Modernization has also taken place in various capacities. Some buildings have double glazing in plastic frames and are insulated on the inner facades. All homes are now also equipped with a shower room, indoor toilet and a kitchen. All of which was not self-evident at the time of the design and construction or did not exist at all.

Architectural details:
Established from wall-sized masonry, here and there also decidedly decorative, originally neatly detailed wooden frames, decoration in the form of some stucco details and Dutch tiles in a half-shield-shaped roof . That is why the downstairs and upstairs apartments were definitely sound from an architectural point of view. Because the buildings were built piece by piece, or sometimes set by set, by other contractors, they have various original differences in detailing. Since the buildings have different owners, a whole series of non-original details can now be discovered. At first glance, the buildings still look quite similar because they all originate from the same blueprint. A blueprint that had to comply with the then new Housing Act of 1901.

In theme Adamshoflaan there are several buildings in half relief. This copy, however, is a full relief version.
