Hendrik Pieter Berlage
Herman Wesstra jr.
Office Building De Nederlanden van 1845 (Arnhem)
This insurance office is one of the many built by Berlage for company director C. Henny. Despite an abundance of windows, sculpture, and details the elevations retain a clear unity, all these spatial elements being absorbed by the taut frontage. The imaginative, stepped summit has been smoothed out by the later addition of an office storey.
