A Dutch Home that Plays with Traditional Brick Architecture


Designed by a local architect for a contractor, the Riel Estate fuses modern design with traditional construction materials.

Masonry construction is ubiquitious in the Brabant region of the Netherlands. However the client behind this home, himeself a contractor and builder, wanted a modern twist on that time-honored solid construction. Joris Verhoeven Architectuur delivered this assymetrically gabled home, titled the Riel Estate, that plaufully reconsiders what the humble brick can do in modern construction.
