Huis van Roosmalen

Huis van Roosmalen

The Scheldekaaien - the riverside promenade- feature many examples of stunning architecture. The Huis van Roosmalen is but one example albeit probably the most eye-catching one. The most prominent feature of the building is the black-and-white striped pattern which was originally designed for none other than Josephine Baker in 1927. The house was commissioned with its elaborate design because both the owner-to-be (art collector Will van Roosmalen) and the architects (Bob van Reeth among them) wanted to draw attention to the Scheldekaaien, which were at the time -the late 80's- in neglect. And it definitely does draw your attention, doesn't it?
