The Emma pharmacy, built for Doctor R. Feenstra, is a rare example of the Hague School. Cubic volumes, built in brick with ornamental masonry, are shifted relative to each other to form a composition on a triangular site. The upstairs apartment can be entered separately.
The Hague School arose at the same time as the Amsterdam School. The architects of the Hague School used brick and wood and applied decorations. However, their formal language is more cubic than that of the Amsterdam School. The name Haagse School was introduced by architect C.J. Blaauw in the magazine Wendingen in 1920, because this architecture was most commonly used in The Hague and an exhibition was devoted to it. Blaauw himself mainly worked in the style of the Amsterdam School.
