Amsterdam school 2

In the same neighbourhood of yesterday you find this postoffice as part of a whole residential building block called "het schip"(the ship) also from M.de Klerk.Today it is a museum with a link here.

A part of the interior. This was the public space . You can also visit an apartment and a garden exhibition with a lot of street furniture also designed by the amsterdam school architects of their time.  Mostly made of cast iron and still good for use in the coming years. I found it a very inspiring visit.

  2. oh, I like when the furniture is designed by the architect, too. This looks art noveau-ish to me.
    I like how the wall tiles are such a big size!

  3. The cast-ironwork is excellent. My eyes were particularly drawn towards that steel hand at the top of the door. The blue grey tiling is wonderful.

    It's always a shame that these lovely interiors all slightly spoilt by the paperwork, books and gifts on the counter.

    Excellent interior though. 10/10 for those experimental designers from years ago.
