Project on the map (green arrow)
“Derived from the late Gothic Kanselarij in Leeuwarden, this is C.H. Peters’ largest, if not his most subtle building in the ‘post office Gothic’ style. Cumbersome when viewed frontally, the building's main volume seems lighter viewed from an acute angle and has a dynamic silhouette.”
There is a heavy tower over the loading-bay at the southwest corner. The main hall with galleries has fine coloring. In 1991 the interior was converted into a shopping center by H. Ruyssenaars.
