Restrained

The luxury of simplicity

Restraint is a recurring theme in Dutch architecture, in the sense of limitation to the essence or in the form of functional architecture. A residence may be small, but can still provide plenty of joy and pleasure. A villa may be large and luxurious, but can still look restrained. Concepts like purity and clarity spring to mind. Hence restraint is one of the core concepts in Dutch architecture, encapsulating eternal values such as beauty, solidity and efficiency. Are such values still to be found in present-day Dutch architecture? Do we still show restraint?
