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.
Office: space available for rent
In our studio in the Kauwgomballenfabriek in Amsterdam Overamstel, we have space available for 10-12 people. It’s a fantastic light and open office in a former industrial warehouse with high ceilings. We share meeting space, model room, lunch and good vibes. If you’re interested, please drop us a line. More information and pictures on this page.
Office update: working from home
Due to safety measures regarding the COVID-19 situation, we will be working from home for the time being. It will take some time to fully adjust to this new reality and we hope we can welcome you to our office again soon. In the mean time: stay healthy and stay in touch. We’ll be available online.
