Haagsche Bluf (Venestraat/Nieuwstraat), Den Haag
Lamoen & Wurth
Toonzaal IJzergieterij Beekman
In recent years The Hague has emerged as the centre of retro-architecture. The Haagsche Bluf shopping centre, brainchild of property developer Gerard Stevers, draws together the major shopping streets in the central retail area. It has abstract glass outer walls placed against which are replicas of famous old facades from The Hague and Delft. The moribund arcade of the restored Art Nouveau premises of 1906, designed for the Schröder company by L.A.H. Wolf, is back in action as the centre’s new entrance. Another well-known Art Nouveau offering by J.W. Bosboom on Denneweg features among the replicas.
