Now for the ground floor. It doesn't show up much on the pictures, but everywhere the ceiling was removed, showing large steal H-beams, concrete, pipes, airducts etceteras. Looks like most of the inside of the building was changed when the discotheques came.
I had a look at some storeroom and more toilets, neither very interesting.

This looked like a genuine office, though the southern wind was howling through the broken windows and there was no ceiling. I found a cleaning schedule here. Cleaning took place on January 16 and 23 1996.
On the other side of the room were two doors with narrow stairs behind them. One leading up, one leading down.

Promising looking staircase. Simple handrail, cement steps.
In this cellar was a bit of water, about two centimetres deep. Not enough to stop me.

Junk soaking in water

Pipewood

Sticker above the door, maybe from a beercase. "Stender" was the first low-alcohol beer Grolsch produced. Because they were afraid it might be a failure, they didn't want it connected to the Grolsch name. When it proved to be a success, the name was changed to Glosch special malt in 1992.
The narrow stair going up didn't seem to go anywhere in particular. It led to a crawlspace filled with air ducts. On a wall was a switch panel, with switches for the theatre room (toneelzaal) and the bowling. What theatre room and what bowling? Some junk lying about didn't seem to belong there.

Wallpaper coming of the walls. The staircase must have led somewhere when this was an office building.

Insulating material OK. Blankets and laundry basket?
