Façades of The Hague #54

Villa Blaeck, Nieuwe Parklaan.

It was designed by architect H. Wesstra jr. (1843 – 1911) in his late romantic decorative style and it was built in 1899.

Its original name was Villa Mariotto and it was meant for tourists staying in the then chic seaside resort of Scheveningen.

By the late 20th century the villa was painted completely white, but happily the white paint has been removed, the outside was brought back to its original decorative state (except for the roof tiles) and it was given its present name.

Today it contains apartments.
