BUILDING TYPE:
Housing

Oud's first housing blocks as Rotterdam City Architect were not entirely his design, the walls on the Bilderdijkstraat being by Meischke and Schmidt. The alignment of eaves gutters and a continuous plinth preserve a unity within the blocks. Each consists of apartments on the two lower levels with maisonettes above. All units have front doors on the street. Theo van Doesburg gave advise on the interior colour schemes and designed the leaded windows above the doors.
