Small scale heritage
The Scharrebiersluis, a steel drawbridge over Nieuwe Herengracht near Kadijksplein, was designed under the direction of W.A. de Graaf at the citys public works department and has national listed status.
Originally, a wooden bridge control building stood next to the bridge but in 1906 this was replaced by a brick building. With its sober form and simple brickwork, the Scharrebier house was clearly designed before the exuberance of the Amsterdam School.
