Deco Amsterdam

Interior at the restaurant in the American Hotel‎ on Leidsekade, just off Leidseplein

Apartment building, Tesselschadestraat, Amsterdam

One of the things I love about Amsterdam is the number of Art Deco influenced buildings that it has. There is even a deco style named Amsterdamse School style of architecture. Most of the buildings in this style were built in 1915-1940.

Near Amsterdam Centrum, there is even a whole neighborhood, the Rivierenbuurt, designed by architects from the Amsterdamse School. I've only ridden through it, in taxi, bus or tram, but one of these visits I'm going to have to get out and walk through in order to get some pictures.
