The bathhouse, designed by Arend Jan Westerman (1884-1966), opened in 1921.
The bathhouses were mainly built for the workers who had no sanitary facilities.
With the 'Badhuizenplan' of alderman Monne de Miranda (1875-1942),
fourteen bathhouses were built and eleven children's bathhouses.
The local residents could take a bath or shower for a small fee.
The bathhouse has a domed roof with a chimney in the middle.
There are two separate entrances one for men and women.
In the middle the waiting rooms, the showers and the baths in a ring around it.
The bathhouse was closed in 1986, today the ‘Bdhuis theater’ is located there.
