The issue of typological authenticity within the traditional Zeeland housing context was pivotal throughout the whole design proces. Without imitating, this housing scheme strives to reinterpret local building techniques, by translating them into a piece of contemporary architecture. Establishing a firm connecting between the historical references and a modern society.

The series of houses by Ralf Pasel and Frederik Kuenzel are based on simple, yet carefully chosen architectural principles such as a homogeneous clay brick materialisation, a rigid repetition of the facade structure, deeply recessed windows and an unusual precision of detailing.
