It was one of the most spectacular buildings commissioned during the early 1800s. Philip Barnaart appointed the architect, and talented artist, Abraham van der Hart to design and build his regal-looking city residence. All the design features, ranging from the ornate sculpture work on the façade to the interior doorknobs, carry his unmistakable signature.
The finished result was a regal, stately, almost non-Dutch-looking glorified townhouse with arguably the most beautifully maintained empire interior in the Netherlands.
In 2019, the furniture collection in the Golden Salon was carefully restored and re-upholstered. The furniture was unique in its time. The woodwork was gold-plated, giving it a very royal feeling, unknown in the Netherlands. After its completion, it was replicated in the Palace on the Dam in Amsterdam.
