Wonderful colors!


No, be reassured, this is not a stained glass window in a contemporary church, but one in the building of the "Bijenkorf" department store, designed by the famous Dutch architect Piet Kramer, and built in 1926. It is a perfect example of the "Amsterdam School" style of architecture. You can find those beautiful stained glass windows in the main staircase, a different one at each level. I found other photos for you on this blog.

Is this in the Bijenkorf in Den Haag? I guess I've never walked up the staircase before. It's a wonderful building (but I wish they'd wash the outside). Nice shot.

Yes R&R it is in the Bijenkorf in The Hague, Next time you go shopping there, forget the escalator, and walk up and down and up and down to admire the windows!
