Onafhankelijkheidsplein 4 (2007)

Onafhankelijkheidsplein 4 bakstenen hoekafwerking (2007)The building of the High Court dates from 1793 according to a memorial stone. It was build on the brick substructure of a wooden house which the Van Wangenheim-Du Four family had build around 1755 and which already had the decorated porch of the present building.

The substructure was raised to the height of a floor. Onafhankelijkheidsplein 4 stoep (2007)Therefore the old porch (a unique piece of rococo style in Suriname) had to be raised with three brick flights. The beautiful brick corner pilasters add a sharp edge to the building.
