A nice building

The Hague is full of very nice buildings. This is the Nutshuis, originally the HQ of the Nutsspaarbank (1921 to 1992). This bank, set up in 1818 played a big role in the social history of The Hague as all profits were redistributed to finance all kinds of social projects (living, education, culture). It was part of the important foundation that now named Fonds 1818. The building itself still houses different social and cultural foundations and is home to many social and cultural events.

I like the architecture of Dutch cities (and Belgian ones too). Very elaborate and beautiful.
