""Klok"-gevel (facade) in Amsterdam canalhouses" Top 5 Page for this destination Gabled Architecture Tip by Pavlik_NL

Gabled Architecture, Amsterdam: 20 reviews and 32 photos

  To the left a "Klok" and a "Hals" facade
by Pavlik_NL

Favorite thing: The "Klok"gevels (Clock, Bell facades) are a type that is very easily mixed with the "Hals" facades. Differences should be seeked in the fact that a "Clock" has a somewhat widened top-part or does not have the square form in the middlesection of the top-facade. They came to be between 1660 and 1790 and are mostly in bases from brick stones. It slowly wins in popularity and is sometimes nicknamed "dented Neck" facades.
