The predominate, standard style here was certainly the redish-brown stenciled numbers on a white background. But you’ll see, there were also many other creative licenses taken to give these buildings and shops distinctive location markers.

Reykjavík House Numbers
14 September, 2012

Reykyavík is a wonderful little city. It has a quaint, homey, special feeling that I haven’t experienced from other places. It would certainly be a great place to spend more time – at least some months… then maybe it gets smaller… There was not an overwhelming amount of interesting house numbers there, but these few give a small taste of the place.

Den Haag House Numbers = Diverse and Interesting

Den Haag House Numbers

The Netherlands is quite famous its typography and design. Travelling around the country, one will notice how it seems every aspect of life has been controlled and manipulated in some way. My theory is this stems from the basic foundation of the country – how the land is literally man made and reclaimed from the sea. Little is left in its natural or default state giving the place a very special quality.

On my last trip to Den Haag, during the Robothon conference, I was struck by this “ultra designed” feeling everywhere. Avidly enjoying photography, one of my new hobbies is collecting images of house numbers. Den Haag is the 3rd major city in my collection (the first to be posted here, others will follow) and it is incredible. There is such a wide variety of numbers and styles, almost every house or building is unique.

Sit back, enjoy, and get inspired by these Dutch numbers!
