119. Bergen, Huize de Beukenhoek, Park Meerwijk
The villa Beukenhoekk designed by M. Kropholler in 1916/18 has the silhouette of a ship. Furthermore the visitor to the house crosses a bridge to reach the entrance. The front yard projected forward as a sea of a grass. The metaphor of shipping, as appealing in the Amsterdam School architecture inspired much later on the house Figueiredo in Gondomar designed by Alvaro Siza in 1984.
