Nederlandsch Indische Escompto Mij at Jalan Asia Afrika 51 Bandung. Architect : J Van Gent, built between 1928-19331.

Wondering hard the aesthetic taste of the owner (probably the bank) who want the color symbolizes theirs. The government should take precautions when renting this jewel of artchitecture to parties that don’t understand the heritage of this city.
