The building of 26-27 Damrak was only occupied in 1935. Henceforth, the vocation is, at the shops, for the ground floor. The roofs and chimneys are lined with copper. The dominant height of the buildings is 35 metres. The artistic interest is the presence of five sculptures in the façade and on the left side, representing the things of life, according to the Guide. These five images suggest, vigilance or custody, the volatility of time or the versatility of life, the wisdom of evil or the power of wisdom over evil, bargains or frugality and protective love. At the top of its entrance, a carved relief represents a wheel of Fortune accompanied by a bronze statue named the widow. At the top of its façade you can discover seven baboins and other stylized sculptures, like six owls. These buildings are registered individually in the monumental State register, since 2001. The building of 28-30 Damrak was built between 1905 and 1906.
