Stadhouderslaan, the grand late 19th century avenue running from The Hague to Scheveningen harbour, was partly destroyed during WW II by the Germans for the Atlantic Wall, as was part of the infrastructure around it.

The area was redesigned by architect Willem Dudok after the war and different architects designed blocks of flats.

I’m not sure who was responsible for this particular one but its style is modernist with a touch of neoclassicism.
