Three facades in the Netherlands: De Klerk, Brinkman and Berlage

Housing by Michel de Klerk in Zaanstraat / Justus van Effen complex by Brinkman in Rotterdam / South Amsterdam by H. P. Berlage

Michel de Klerk’s work (image 1) is one of the most significant of what was to be called the Amsterdam School and was closely linked to the expressiveness of the brick­work and a highly ornamental component.

Brinkman (image 2) aimed to simplify the paraphernalia of Dutch facadism and let the facade contribute, in a simple way, to the austerely monumental nature of the wall. On the exterior of the Justus van Effen complex he uses dark brick and white frames on the vertical openings. He modulates the facade with slight patterns on the frontage and leaves the concrete exposed on the large lintels of the arches.

H.P. Berlage (image 3) defended that “the wall is to be displayed in its pristine bareness. Only this way can its capacity to shape space be displayed.”
