Bouwjaar 1884
Het 'huis met de kabouters' is een groep van drie etagewoningen uit 1884, ontworpen door A.C. Boerma, en kenmerkt zich door de bijzondere toepassing van vormgeving en materialen. De combinatie van neogotische elementen als spitsbogen en spuwers met kruiskozijnen, natuurstenen blokken en het houtsnijwerk bij de overstekende kappen is opvallend. Opmerkelijk zijn vooral de kabouters die elkaar vanaf de daklijsten een bal lijken toe
te werpen.

Year of Construction 1884

The huis met de kabouters (house with the hobgoblins) is a group of three apartments from 1884, designed by A.C. Boerma and characterized by the unusual use of form and materials. The combination of Gothic Revival elements such as pointed arches and gargoyles with four-paned windows, natural stone blocks and the woodcarving on the jutting roofs is striking. A particularly remarkable feature is the hobgoblins that seem to be throwing a ball to one another from atop the cornices.
