The Dingemanshuys, now a municipal monument, was built in 1964 to a design by Piet Dingemans (1910-1970) as a private residence and architectural office, of b2 concrete blocks. The functional building volumes and the varied stacking of the bricks form a playful whole.
How architecture feeds the imagination of art.
