From the architect. Inspired by the Dogma rules, a detached house was built in the Zuideburen district of Leeuwarden. The design and details were all specially created for this house. 

The facade arises from the floor plan, and vice versa. The models of the house where made by hand. The drawings of the house contain nothing but architectural information. 

The materials where used according to their nature. The architecture of the house contains no ornamentation and no references to architectural movements. It is architecture of the here and now. The house speaks for itself. The architect supervised the entire construction process.

How rigidly dogmatic should a house be? Will it stay that way? http://t.co/Kh2uE8zd

Dogma House, http://t.co/Q3Opydch. Pros: roofline/massing; 1 interior detail. Cons: all the other interior details/finishes (via @ArchDaily)

This article reads like it was written with wax crayon by a 2-year old. On a side note, Dogma House is a title already taken by the Vatican. I can already hear their lawyers salivating.

It's nice to know that a simple stroll on the roof could lead to injury and death.
"The models of the house were made by hand."...I agree with Andrew, the text is very badly written.
Overall a very unimpressive house made irritating by the horrible description.

there are no railings next to the pool/canal/pond/whatever either. they are just asking for a disaster, aren't they? I wonder if they allow vehicles nearby? Tsk! Tsk!

This is a recurring problem on Arch Daily. Apparently, grammar and spelling are too complicated for architects to grasp.

adfv · December 15, 2011

A beautiful shape, outside and in. More pictures needed of the various spaces.

ariana roberts · December 15, 2011

i've seen this interesting house before in a book by Esther Moreno and Bridget Vranckx.

"The architecture of the house contains no ornamentation and no references to architectural movements."

Seriously?
