Het Scheve Huis

The three buildings on the Vooreiland number 10, 11 and 12 together form “The Leaning House” of Medemblik. The facades are deliberately slightly sloping. The row of buildings on the Vooreiland has been built in Renaissance style with seventeenth-century step gables. Five facing bricks can be seen scattered across the facade of the three buildings. The last two represent two sailing ships, and the middle three “hope” or “wisdom,” “faith,” and “moderation.”
