The Scheepstimmermanstraat (Shipwright's Street) in Amsterdam is famous for its 60, all-unique houses designed by architects such as Herzberger (126), van Velsen (120), Höhne & Rapp (62) and MVRDV (26 & 40).

The landscape architect, Adriaan Geuze of the firm West 8, planned a street on which residents were free to design their own houses on the waterfront.
