Chimney Pots are the crowning glory on a housing development in Hoofddorp, the Netherlands. In keeping with the architect’s reinterpretation of the English Tudor style, Studio Wieki Somers has created a range of chimney pots that enhance the identity of the new neighbourhood.
The inspiration came from the tall, richly decorated chimney pots characteristic of English Tudor architecture, which echo the way in which farmers stacked peat around the Haarlemmermeer Lake in the sixteenth century. The studio developed a modular system by stacking several elements in various combinations to produce different compositions. It is a kind of Lego-system with infinite possibilities.
