Today is the subject of my pictures gables. The pictures were taken in Deventer,Alkmaar, Dordrecht, Middelburg, Monnickendam, Doesburg and many other cities.

A Stepped gable, Crow-stepped gable, or Corbie step is a stair-step type of design at the top of the triangular gable-end of a building.

The top of the parapet wall projects above the roofline and the top of the brick or stone wall is stacked in a step pattern above the roof as a decoration and as a convenient way to finish the brick courses.

Early examples, from the 15th century onwards, are found in England, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, and Sweden. Crow-stepped gables were also used in Scotland as early as the 16th century.

Examples of Scottish crow-stepped gable can be seen at Muchalls Castle, Monboddo House, and theStonehaven Tolbooth, all late 16th and early 17th century buildings.

Crow-stepped gables are also common on Danish medieval churches.

In the Dutch language, this design is termed trapgevel or "stair-step gable", characteristic of many brick buildings in the Netherlands, Belgium, and in Dutch colonial settlements.

19th century examples are found in North America, and the step gable is also a feature of the northern-renaissance revivalstyles.

Vandaag is het onderwerp van mijn foto`s trapgevels. De foto`s zijn gemaakt in Deventer, Alkmaar, Dordrecht, Middelburg, Monnickendam, Doesburg en nog vele andere steden.

Een trapgevel is een oude traditionele topgevel waarvan de bovenzijde zich naar boven toe trapsgewijs versmalt.

Deze trappen worden vaak afgedekt met natuurstenen platen om inwateren tegen te gaan. De afdekstukken zijn afwaterend bewerkt en steken rondom buiten het metselwerk.

Met name in Nederland is de trapgevel veel toegepast; het type komt ook in België, Frankrijk, Duitsland en Engeland voor.

Landen waar het natte klimaat steile daken vereist waarop dakpannen maximaal kunnen functioneren.

De oudst bekende trapgevels dateren uit de 12e eeuw en zijn gebouwd in de romaanse stijl.
