Two brick dikehouses shall rise again at the intersection of a post-war neighborhood and an historical dike in Dordrecht, the Netherlands. The new houses have been designed by Tim de Graag and refer in an abstract way to two historical dikehouses which used to announce the driveway to Zuidwijk, a seventeenth century estate. The elongated houses nevertheless fit seamlessly into the urban pattern of the post-war district.
