Façades of The Hague #106

Villa, built in 1902, Nieuwe Parklaan.

Its style is quite distinctive for the period around 1900.

Like in the different eclectic neo-styles of the 19th century there is a strong sense of decoration, but it tries to be simpler, less opulent.

In that way it gives more space to refinement in the details, stressing the different volumes of the building.

As such, a villa like this stands stylistically just at the beginning of the huge modernist developments in the 20th century.
