This luxurious apartment complex is situated on the highest point of Scheveningen and oriented towards sun and sea. The 11 towers, 5 and 7 storeys high, are grouped in a horseshoe shape. The complex contains 70 apartments, all with a round conservatory facing south. The facade is covered with white tiles against the sea-climate. The location of Seinpostduin is famous for this is the dune where Hendrik Willem Mesdag made the drawings which later helped him to create the cylindrical painting Panorama Mesdag. This building might also be the instigator that provoked Lonely Planet travel guides to include the following quote in their guidebook: "The long beach at Scheveningen, pronounced Ė if possible Ė as síCHay-fuh-ninger, attracts nine million visitors per year. Itís horribly developed: architects who lost hospital commissions have designed all manner of modern nightmares overlooking the strand."
