Remarkably, the buildings actually don't boost Dutch architectural style at all.

@WC EEND

True, its more the strict overall used neo-classicistic-styles all the other European countries used in their colonies. Its not a style linked to one particular country.

Weird thing is, that the Dutch tended to built more impressive buildings in their colonies than in the Netherlands itself. In fact, the Dutch Governors-General in cities like Batavia/Buitenzorg lived in much more luxury than our Kings and Queens in The Hague.
