Gateway to the water: the Dutch town of Sneek is shaped by water. Its landmark is the medieval water gate, which closed the waterway into the city during attacks; the old town can still be circumnavigated by water on the Stadtgracht and Sneek is a Mecca for wakeboarders.

The residential building, situated on a corner plot directly on the Zwette, is also a gateway to the water: its living areas face the canal. Lift-and-slide doors of GEALAN system S 9000 were installed on the ground floor, while floor floor-to-ceiling GEALAN-KUBUS® windows adorned the first floor – a successful combination.

The window profiles – like all GEALAN-KUBUS® profiles with the surface technology GEALAN-acrylcolor® – are as deep black as the water of the Zwette at night. The brick façade of the house quotes traditional Frisian architecture; the partly slightly overhanging brick long format gives it a modern twist.
