Den Bosch

Globe shaped stilt houses

The city of Den Bosch ("'s Hertogenbosch" or simply "Den Bosch") is famous for its 'Bossche Bollen'. The pastry is filled with whipped cream, coated entirely with a thick chocolate icing and has the size of a tennis ball.
This chocolate ball must have been the inspiration for Dries Kreijkamp (1937-2014). This Dutch architect created 50 globe shaped houses ("bolwonigen").

The Bolwoning

The globe-shaped houses are well suited for individuals or couples with no children. The house consists of a cylindrical base, accommodating storage and utility spaces, and a semi-three-story fiberglass sphere. Inside the house, a spiral staircase is leading from the groud floor to the bedroom and, slightly higher, an intermediate floor with bathroom. The uppermost floor is a vast open space with the kitchen and living room. The round windows provide natural light and a panoramic view.
