    The stepped gable has been so popular that double houses were also equipped with it. There are a few more examples of this in Amsterdam.

    Characteristic of the Amsterdam Renaissance style of Hendrick de Keyser in particular are the large staircases, often unequal in size and few in number, while each staircase has claw pieces or other decorations. Also typical are the pilasters in the wall dams and the S-shaped relief arches ("curtain arches") above the windows. Sometimes the stepped gable has so many decorations that the stairs themselves are barely recognizable. Hendrick de Keyser's style has been widely followed, but usually in a sober manner. One speaks of the austere Amsterdam renaissance. Characteristic is a simple stepped gable that again resembles the Dutch type, with the difference that instead of many small blocks, a few large blocks of natural stone are used. The windows are also placed in niches in such a way that the wall dams resemble pilasters.

    The neck gable was later created from the stepped gable by simplifying the stairs further and further. The bell gable was created by decoration of the neck.
