Brassershout

High density with the rural feel of the typical Dutch country house: not 45 houses but 8¼ farms per hectare! Not one army of uniform houses but a great variety of steep and angled tiled roofs, low gutters, wooden gables, dormer windows, conservatories, carports and loggias and other informal attachments.

In Brassershout, the traditional style features are enriched with contemporary, alienating elements. For the detached house this is the asymmetric dormer window in the slanting roof. For the townhouses at the both ends of the row of houses this is the traditional head-body-tail build provided with a distinctive roof shape.
