Building in wood in Netherlands
We would like to start our news blog dedicated to building in wood in different countries with the Netherlands.
Broek in Waterland is a small village known for its lovely old-Dutch wooden houses painted in soft colours. Broek in Waterland was first mentioned in the 13th century.
One house was usually occupied by several families. The village was involved in herring fishery and maritime trade. For that reason there is a church built before 1400 and dedicated to St. Nicholas, the patron saint of seafarers.
The demand for completely wooden houses continued to grow. But in Netherlands there was no tradition of building in wood and wooden houses had to be imported from abroad. In the beginning of the last century about three hundred wooden houses were built all over the country, most of these houses came completely prefabricated overseas, from Scandinavian countries, Germany, Austria, England and even Canada.
Unfortunately, due to limited knowledge and craftsmanship and no continuing building in wood tradition not many of them preserved in good condition and can be found nowadays countrywide.
Here almost all buildings are wooden, even the Cathedral. Yellow and blue-grey are its colours, and it’s also made of wood.
We'll continue to explore traditions of building in wood in other countries in next articles.
