That is a magnificent building I didn't know of but I had to check if it's known as being Art Deco, because to me it looked like a precursor of Modernist architecture, so I thought of Expressionist architecture but not Art Deco. Well, turns out I had forgotten what I learned 30 years ago, as I was thinking of Art Nouveau and not Art Deco.

I found out that the building is De Dageraad, from 1920, by the architects Michel de Klerk and Piet Kramer. In fact, it's known as belonging to the Amsterdam School (style / movement), which is indeed a movement within Expressionism. A few sources call it Art Deco.

Now for my Art Deco building:
