      I was there during an "open dag". Very interesting architecture inside the building.

      This is the entrance of one of the few buildings in the centre of Rotterdam that survived the air raid and the subsequential fires of May 14, 1940. The fires heavily damaged the upper floors and the roof though, but they were restored under the guidance of the creator of the building, Kropholler, an architect of the Dutch 'Delft School' style stream. The building was designed in the 1930's for the Mees Bank. The inner structure consists of several older buildings which were assembled and altered to one building. www.flickr.com/photos/reisgekki/4410813514/
