In 1884 on the corner of the Tesselschadestraat/Vondelstraat, near the Vondelpark an URBAN VILLA was established, named 'Oud Leyerhoven', on the instruction of P.J.H. Cuypers designed by his son Jos T.J. Cuypers, as his first work, in eclectic architectural style, in which, among others, influences from Italian architecture have been processed. The villa served as a residence for the client and was later inhabited by Jos Cuypers. In 1922 on the instruction of 'Maatschappij tot Exploitatie en Administratie van Vakvereenigingsgebouwen' the villa was converted into an office with doorman’s house by architect L. van der Veen (source: Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed (Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands)).
