Architecture – The Amsterdam School (1910-1930)
In response to rationalism, a group of architects emerged in the early 20th century who sought to express themselves more artistically. This gave rise to an expressionist architectural style known as the Amsterdam School. This style emphasizes the external form, which is robust and solid. A characteristic feature is the ladder windows: windows divided by a large number of mullions. You can often find this architectural style in homes originally built as social housing.
In 1925, architects Hendriks and Springer designed six houses on the corner of Valeriusplein and Cornelis Krusemansstraat, along with a school building on the corner of Okeghemstraat. Distinctive features include the ladder windows, heavy front doors with rounded masonry, and beautiful bay windows. A notable detail is the round windows on the second floor and the central open staircase.
