Han van Loghem
This botanic garden of trees takes its name from Trompenburg, the Kralingen villa demolished in 1833, where the famous 17th-century admiral Maarten Tromp is said to have lived. A gardener's house, a simple brick structure with a pitched roof on Oostzeedijk, was designed by J.B. van Loghem, one of the protagonists of the Dutch Modern Movement. According to Van Loghem this is unquestionably a functionalist design 'in that the functional demands in question have been met in all respects in an entirely unforced way.'
