Seven blocks form a new lane, Morgenzonlaan, in the Transvaal district of the Hague. This lane runs square to Schalk urgerstraat, Hertzogstraat and Kritzingerstraat that were kept intact. This part of Transvaal was built in the early 20-th century. The dwellings mainly consist of social housing. This explains the typological discontinuity with the older Schilderswijk district. The alcove dwelling has been replaced by wider types which in most cases are accessed by external runup staircases that were considered more hygienic at the time. Transvaal does not possess a dominant houselike urban structure. The architectural scale is formed by a runup taircase with a dwelling on either side of it. It should be noted that there is also a stylistic discontinuity. The traditional Dutch house with three vertical windows on each floor has been replaced by a decorated brick architecture with free façade compositions. Longwinded staircases support the imagery. It is remarkable that the façades facing the major roads, such as Schalk Burgerstraat, are less plastically developed than the ones facing the domestic roads in the core of the quarter.
The design responds to a recent demand for town houses. At newly formed Morgenzonlaan four short blocks are built. The dwellings have a 10 meter high front façade. The façade has been kept flush. At Kritzingerstraat a long block with row houses are built. These are put in a four-by-four composition by introducing small jumps in the façade. The resulting sizes correspond to the original sizes that were the result of the original run-up staircase typology.
Schalk Burgerstraat is supplied with a flush façade again. This façade is much longer than the ones at Morgenzonlaan. By the manipulation of the freeze the visual order of this block is based on a unit of three dwellings. At the corner of Morgenzonlaan and Schalk Burgerstraat a slender point block has been introduced. This responds to the fierce presence of the church at Kempstraat and establishes a visual end to the vista from Kaapstraat. The facades are clad with orange hand-moulded bricks, laid with recessed bed joints and no head joints. Orange and purple decorations in wire cut brickwork have been added. The dwellings have freely shaped gargoyles, roof and facade lintels. The façades have received a decorative quality which fits into the free-style brick architecture of the district without selecting unmotivated tropes from it. Only consistent local architectural figures reoccur: all blocks have angled street corners with a front door in it, the window frames are large and are painted off-white, the façades possess plinths and freezes.
