Another building along the Eendrachtskade N.Z. in Groningen, Netherlands; it must have been some business building, maybe a workshop or small factory, but there is no clue as to its original function.

It is built in a lovely consistent Art Deco style, with some bold geometric shapes formed by brickwork. The whole façade is constructed from the same beautiful orange-red and very smooth brick. This is a detail of the construction of the bay window; here is a wider-angle shot for some context:

    What a neat angle! Its cool to see the original shot…I like these bricks a lot!


  • Thank you Lynne! Glad to hear you like it!

    The shot in the description was actually a separate wider-angle shot I took to give this one a bit of context.

    Great shot Marjolein, love the POV! :)

  • Thank you Kylie! If you walk past and look up, this is what you see – I’m sure the architect desiged it as an eyecatcher. :)

    Wow..that’s an unusual angle. Wild!

  • Just looking up … and the only angle at which you can really see the awesome brickwork here. :) But so many people don’t look up (or down for that matter!).

    Thanks for the nice comment, Birgitta!

    Great lines and patterns, like the little different at the bottom

  • Thank you, Alan!

    The little bit at the bottom is the top of the door opening below – I really loved this little building, will probably return to it in a few weeks…
