During his lifetime he had quite an international reputation. But because his work was done in and around Heerlen, a city that lost its status as an industrial centre in decades to come, he has been somewhat forgotten. But in recent years he is being rediscovered, exemplified by the proclamation of his Glaspaleis as one of the world’s most important buildings of the 20th petz, and also due to Wiel Arets ‘ — a contemporary Dutch architect also from Heerlen — many publications on Peutz produced in the past ten years.

Peutz was also responsible for the adjacent Pancratiuskerk for Monumentenzorg — ‘Monument Care’ and the juxtaposition between this old Romanesque church and the ultramodern department store is typical for his mixing of the old and the new. The retreat house and the Glaspaleis are good examples of a new phase in his building style that he developed after entering a competition to design the Palais des Nations in Genevathis new style accumulated in the Town hall of Heerlen.

Ffrits — The Glaspaleis is a modernist building in Heerlen, Netherlands, built in Formerly a fashion house and department store, Schunck, it is now the centre of the city. The original name was Modehuis Schunck, but it was soon nicknamed Glaspaleis, the architectural style is largely according to what is in the Netherlands known as het Nieuwe Bouwen, which corresponds roughly to Modernism, Bauhaus and International style.

Init won the first Bouwfonds Award in the category Vital Monuments, init won the Nederlandse Bouwprijs in the Projects category. Init won the Nationale Renovatieprijs in the Utiliteitsbouw category.

But the City council gave the go ahead, apart from a few minor points, the job was given to Maastrichtse Betonijzerbouw P. Knols, who had made the lowest bid atguilders. The fdits used to be at the Church Square, but when it moved to the new Market Square, the shop lost its strategic location, which was one reason for the move.

Vroom en Dreesman never made use of the house, which was located in between the old shop and the new Glaspaleis, leaving it to decay and it remained an eyesore until well after World War II. Schunck only managed to buy it infor the exorbitant price of 2.

The section to the West was given to the City and cleared, as a result, the Glaspaleis is now completely free-standing. The building to the East has been replaced by the music school annex, the result was a structure of stacked and covered hanging markets, protected against frigs elements by the freestanding glass encasing on three sides. The Glaspaleis is an example of early modern architecture, made of glass, steel. Each floor has about 30 mushroom-shaped pillars, ever narrower as one goes up the floors, there is no front as such – this is only defined by the fact that one side faces the market square.

Friits the moment the building is completely free-standing, almost surrounded by three squares, at seven floors and a height of It has been called a palace for the people, especially for the miners, the pillars are mushroom-shaped for two reasons.


The first is utilitarian, the floors were constructed beamless for better daylighting and, thus and this has the additional advantage of simplifying the placing and moving of cables and lighting fixtures.

And the mushroom shapes give an impression of frkts height, the second, constructional, advantage is that the steel bundle reinforcement in two directions makes the structure equally rigid in all directions.

Beauty — it should be aesthetically pleasing, according to Vitruvius, the architect should strive to fulfill each of these three attributes as well as possible.

I am happy and I say, This is beautiful, le Corbusiers contemporary Ludwig Mies van der Rohe said Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together.


The notable 19th-century architect of skyscrapers, Louis Sullivan, promoted an overriding precept to architectural design, function came to be seen as encompassing all criteria of the use, perception and enjoyment fritx a building, not only practical but also aesthetic, psychological and cultural.
