Office building Casuariestraat corner Bleijenburg.
Built during the first half of the 1970s, it is a typical example of modernist property development architecture.
It is anonymous and simple in its concept, not designed for a certain public function, but as a skeleton to earn money with.
In spite of that there is a quaint kind of elegance in the façade with its regular relief-like vertical ribs.
It’s a pity the surface of the concrete has got a tan; originally whitish grey, now it is like essentialist modernity’s old age (also with the somehow very postmodern quasi-old fashioned lanterns, placed more recently on the pavement).
