This corner building has retail space on the ground floor. Bakery, pub, butcher shop, Thai takeaway ... It has already had many functions in the past centuries. Although the upper floors are little changed, this does not apply to the facade of the ground floor, which is also called the plinth of the building. The plinth has been provided with as much glass surfaces as possible for shopwindows. The aesthetics is inferior to economic considerations as one can see in this plinth. The cellar under the shop serves as a storage room. Through hatches in the sidewalk this cellar is accessible for freight.
Striking is the frame around the original windows, which is painted in a highly contrasting color in 2015. This original frame is made of plaster. Plasterwork is moreover used to finish the entire surface of the outer walls. The shopwindows of the ground floor are clearly added later. They are in terms of size, layout and materials different from the rest. This house has red roof tiles. Due to the advent of central heating, the chimney is gone from the roof.
