The Boy Scouts’ association building is built in the style of the Amsterdam School. The main volume has been worked out in straight and curved shapes on the rectangular floor plan. The ribs of the parabolic hipped roof rest on the round-brick buttresses at the corners of the building. There are two slanting ventilation ornaments on the roof. Striking is the tapered chimney that rises next to the main volume and forms a vertical accent. Daylight enters the building through the bay-like windows on either side of the chimney and through the windows at the bottom of the short roof surfaces. A beautifully detailed parabolic door is present in the low northern extension. The high flagpole, which protrudes through the low roof of the extension, has unfortunately disappeared.
