Façades of The Hague #86

Richly decorated neo-renaissance façade, Balistraat.

It was designed by architect Johan Mutters (1858-1939) in the 1880s.

The big door originally gave access to a courtyard with stables and a coach house.

Today these have been redesigned into apartments along a small courtyard (not visible in these pictures).

The two round medallion-like embellishments over the door originally had protruding horse head decorations.
