Common features and geometric shapes of Dutch houses

In addition to the general features inherent in all buildings in the Dutch style, there are several “particulars” that are not always present, but also make a significant contribution to creating the image of a Dutch house.

These are, first of all, pipes, which are traditionally built of brick, and elegant decoration made of white brick or white stone (the main thing here is the presence of white elements).

Often dark window frames emphasize the lines of the windows and graphically break the mass of the facade into several parts. Also popular are cast iron grilles and all kinds of decorations made of dark metal – both those that have practical meaning (for example, lanterns) and those that are completely useless – like a bell on the facade.
