Buildings in Drachten

A few buildings in Drachten I missed first time round.

Art Deco style brickwork on this:-

Typical old Dutch style:-

Modern bungalow type house but flat-roofed:-

Another more modern style house:-

I also spotted this neat multi-child trolley being trundlied across the town square:-

De Peppel Sports Park

When visiting Drachten in May 2017 (see previous posts) I found a parking space right by a sports complex. This turned out to be the De Peppel Sports Park, home of V V Drachten.

The club plays in the third Sunday class of the KNVB Noord, the sixth amateur level.

Drachten, Friesland, The Netherlands

Drachten is a sizable town in the province of Friesland in The Netherlands.

Like most Dutch towns (I concede Frisians might not quite consider themselves Dutch) it contains buildings which verge on Art Deco in style:-

I liked these stained glass windows:-

It’s the curve that gives this the deco look but the rest seems too modern:-

These houses have the look:-

This is certainly more like it. Art Deco “rule of three” in the windows, plus the roofline stepped at the ends and the detailing in the brickwork:-
