These houses are very special dear senna3: they are called the Vingboon houses. You made a beautiful picture of them!!! To my faves!

Philip Vingboon (1607-1678) was a renowned dutch architect. He designed in a classical style and the special thing about these houses is that the facades are built with natural stone, an expression of utmost wealth for the Netherlands... It was 'normal' to use bricks and sometimes a bit of natural stone...
