The architects C. de Groot, J. van Laren and J.H. Slot are well-known names in Hilversum, also when it comes to the construction of retail houses. An architect who is less well-known but who has also built a lot in Hilversum is C. Trappenburg. He designed in the style that seeks a combination of the Amsterdam School and the work of W.M. Dudok. In the main shopping street of Hilversum, the Kerkstraat, on the corner with a former village green is the retail house, which was built for the fashion house Noordman. The articulated tower-like volume with the stairwell responds to the location. During a renovation of the property in 1999, the original qualities of the property were restored by removing shop windows and restoring the red copper fronts with flat and curved copper covers.
