Slowly the houses in Utrecht Wisselspoor become visible after removing the scaffolding. These first four, clad in fiber cement panels, will be followed by a series of brick and wooden houses and an apartment block. Together a pallet of materials that fit in with the industrial character of the new neighbourhood. More information here.
New project: CLT house Reeuwijk
For a beautiful site on an island in Reeuwijk we will be designing a freestanding, zero-energy, bio-based single family house constructed in cross laminated timber (CLT). We are exited to further explore the potential of building bio-based, circular and with high standards in energy efficiency.
The detail design phase of the housing project in Utrecht Leeuwesteyn has started. After winning the tender for plot 13a we optimised the overall scheme and are currently working on the design and detailing of the brick patterns that play an important role in the Art Deco themed neighbourhood.
New project: micro housing Enka
We have been commissioned to design ten small housing units and a bar in a former first-aid building of the Enka factory in Ede. Building on our previous designs for comfortable small-scale living, we wil focus on designing ten functional boxes that define the spaces. These prefabricated wooden boxes allow to be placed in the listed monumental building without affecting the monumental elements.
Update: WFC sketch design
We submitted the sketch design for the four wooden office buildings in Ede. Three of the four buildings are directly informed by the shape and rhythm of the wings of the former military building, reflecting it in the opposite facades. The design has been positively reviewed by the Quality Team and we will move into the next phase soon.
New project: Ketelhuis
As a second project on the site of the World Food Centre in Ede we have been asked to make a proposal for renovating and transforming a listed monumental heating plant into a bar/restaurant. The ambition is to extend the introverted building in order to create a welcoming gesture at the edge of the forest and the former parade ground.
Win: tender Utrecht Leeuwesteyn
With our proposal ‘De Omloop’, together with developer AM, Delta Vormgroep, Sustainer Homes and Koopmans, we won the tender for kavel 13a in Utrecht Leeuwesteyn. The project consists of 36 houses and 8 apartments around a collective garden. Circularity, biodiversity, rain water retention and a contemporary interpretation of Art Deco architecture played a key role in the proposal. More information here.
New project: World Food Center
We have been commissioned to design a series of four sustainable office buildings within the masterplan for the new World Food Center in Ede. With a timber construction combined with a breathable, damp open facade and roof we will create fully circular and healthy buildings, aligning to WFC’s ambitions to provide healthy work and research facilities for innovative food companies.
