Groningen has its own version of the Amsterdam School. One of the more expressive utterances of the Groningen School is Odd Fellows Hall, a clubhouse for this secret benevolent society. The three convex brickwork pillars in the front facade most probably symbolize the three grades of honour in the society: fellowship, love and trust. The dark brick facade boasts a clutch of decorative brick ornaments. In the same street at numbers one and five are two houses also built around that time by Evert van Linge, a contemporary who wielded a somewhat toned-down variant of Groningen School architecture.
