Façades of The Hague #1

0001 Leyweg

It may look a bit strange to start a series about façades with a piece of wasteland.

0002 Leyweg

Until quite recently an eye hospital stood on this place at Leyweg.

0003 Leyweg

It was designed by Sjoerd Schamhart (1919-2007) and built in 1970.

0004 Leyweg

Schamhart lived and worked in The Hague and designed more buildings in this town.

0005 Leyweg

The eye hospital was surely one of his most elegant buildings and, what’s more, it was my first residential address in The Hague.
