the building:
The late-Gothic, two-storey gabled house was renovated in the mid-16th century for mayor Kerkhof, and decorated with coloured terracotta elements. The gable is constructed of alternating glazed and unglazed bricks. The portal with depressed round arch has a richly profiled splay. The upper storey has coupled windows with cable-moulding mullions surmounted by medallions of warriors’ heads. The seven-axis crow-stepped gable contains terracotta ornaments with early Renaissance elements. The interior was completely refurbished in 1907.
