Het Schip (The Ship) is a building from 1919 that has become an iconic landmark for its architecture. The unique orange-brick building designed by Michel de Klerk is built in the style of the Amsterdam School of Expressionism, vaguely resembling a ship with unusual angles. Built as a residence for blue collar families, it preserves an apartment from the 1920s showcasing the domestic lifestyle and furniture of low-income workers of the time. The former post office in Het Schip houses a museum of the Amsterdam School of architecture.
