More information

Background information:
This corner building was built in 1899 within the fortifications of Kampen and has since been used as a residential and office/retail space. At the top is an apartment accessible through the right front door, and in particular the ground floor, accessible through the left front door, has been furnished for various commercial purposes. In recent decades, for example, a real estate agency and a tattoo parlor have had a home. The corner building was designed by Markenburg as a semi-relief building, so that the front facade fits nicely into a row of the "theme Steenweg" buildings. In fact, we didn't have to "cut" anything on the side wall, as is usual with semi-relief buildings. This is because in reality it is a building with a "shallow base". In fact, both right and left rear can be directly connected to another building while it remains neatly realistic.

Architectural details:
Because in 1899 it was already possible to build much more modern than the appearance of this building shows, we can speak here about the Neo-Renaissance style. Characteristics of this style include the layers of decorative stripes , which have now been painted dark in this building, and the large light-colored corner stone’s. Both should actually have been made of natural stone, but much more often, and so here too, they are simply built from much cheaper stucco. The division of surfaces that arose between the cornerstones and the decorative stripes was then filled in with neat masonry in usually reddish-brown color. Another feature of the Neo-Renaissance style is cross-style window frames. But they have never been in this building. The large window on the ground floor is an adaptation of a later date, but the other frames at least still have the original layouts. The fairly complex roof for a building of this modest size can be linked to the Neo-Renaissance style.
