Pakhuis van Oldenborgh

  • Year built: 1658
  • Style of construction: Classicism
  • Commissioned by: Johan Sam Jacobsz
  • Original function: Wine warehouse

Oldenborgh warehouse. This former warehouse was commissioned by the wine merchant Johan Sam Jacobsz in 1658. It has a very stately brick neck gable. It is a Vingboons gable, named after the designer Philips Vingboons. The still existing original hoisting installation, beam construction and an old spiral staircase are probably a hundred years older than the façade. Below the lifting beam, there is a beautiful carving of a figure in the shape of a satyr on either side. A satyr is a cheerful and mischievous forest creature from Greek mythology. Buck's feet are among its physical characteristics. The building is three window axes wide and consists of a basement, ground floor, two storeys and an attic. The restoration was carried out in a very traditional way, but contrasts were not avoided either, such as the stainless steel spiral staircase. The building has been divided into two flats, numbers 17 and 18. The ground floor and first floor belong to house number 17 and were formerly used as offices and a tasting room. The former warehouse attics belong to number 18 and have been converted into a loft flat. The lower facade has two arched gateways, which are still the original entrances to the office and the attics.
