Year 1936
Architect(s)
  • Duijnstee J.

Built in 1936-38 by architect Jos Duijnstee, on behalf of the Dutch insurance company "Rotterdamse Verzekering Societeiten" RVS.

The style could not be more modernist-functionalist.

The rather austere facade has regular bay windows and a high backlit glazed banner which gives it all its personality.

The large entrance door is surrounded by quarter-round hard stone decorated with mosaics. The building has been listed since August 1988.

The municipal administration of St Josse-ten-Node has installed some of its departments there since 2018.
