The roof surfaces also add to the charm of the town houses. Rather than the curved roofing tiles widely used in the Netherlands, the architects Molenaar & Van Winden based in Delft chose to set an interesting new design accent with a stylish roofing tile. For example, at the unusually flat and widely formed gutters, with a thickness of only around 2 cm, the smooth-finish roofing tiles level out into almost nothing. The hips of the roof are designed to be almost level with the flat tiles. The arrises lie almost level. This gives the roof an even smoother look. The joints at the gables, dormers and chimneys are realized with similar precision and simplicity.
The town houses stand in a new build development directly behind the Ijsselmeer-Markermeer dyke. Prominent in the design of these semi-detached houses is their two-colour masonry and plain roofing surfaces covered with stylish black-engobed roofing tiles. The decorative horizontal bands of buff-coloured facing bricks and the generously dimensioned, slender roof overhangs lend the hipped-roofed houses a certain lightness and elegance.
