This national monument from 1867 was built as a Diaconal orphanage in sober eclectic brick architecture based on a design from 1862 by the architect E. Saraber. In 1925-1926 it was renovated by architect G. van Hoogevest. The orphanage kept its original function until 1942. In 1991, it was converted into apartments while preserving the authentic details.
The apartment is very conveniently located on a canal at the beginning of the Avenue Culinaire in the bustling city centre of The Hague with surprisingly good parking and within walking distance of the Grote Markt, the shops, the station, particularly good public transport and many bars and restaurants. In addition, a petting zoo and the Spinozahof city oasis are also within walking distance.
