Façades of The Hague #32

Late 19th century double villa, originally known as Duinaue (untranslatable name; left half of the building) and Benvenuta (Italian for welcome; right half), Badhuisweg, built near the coast as two chic hostels.

By the late 20th century it was a club and in the early 21st  century it was a sex club.

After that it became a night club, which was just closed down when these pictures were taken.

It reopened last year under a new name.

It was built as a very smart villa.

With the front windows walled up, it looks a bit uncouth these days and it probably won’t regain its old glory; i’m afraid its dilapidation won’t be stopped.
