I am very pleased to announce that the design of Mark Gijsbers and I for a compact livingspace has been nominated as one of the five finalists in the Condo Competition by housing cooperation Sint Trudo. The competition asked for innovative spatial interpretations to create a concept for 146 small apartments in a so called Condo tower. With this competition Sint Trudo aims to increase the diversity in the range of housing in Eindhoven (…) and to stimulate innovation in affordable housing.

House 20×3 in Zierikzee has been rewarded the 2016 Daylight Award in the category <1000m2. The award ceremony took place in the International Tax Centre in the Dutch city of Leiden. The jury praised the thoughtful approach on the existing section and appreciated the clever routing, the sightline all the way through the building and the position, size and proportion of the roof-lights.

“Architecturally seen it created extraordinary and subtle differences in light and shadow in the heart of the house”

Lately I have been working on the design of some custom made furniture for the renovation in Zierikzee. The modern intervention on the house is characterized by the use of natural oak and black steel components. This concept was the starting point for the long bench and narrow table as well. One of the biggest challenges was to design a bench which could cover a radiator. In collaboration with Dutch craftsman Casper Rutges the design has been optimized and built.




I am very pleased to announce that House 20×3 in Zierikzee has been nominated for the biannual award for exemplary and innovative use of daylight in buildings. Last week House 20×3 was visited by all six members of the jury, which is led by Alexander Rosemann this year, Professor of Building Lighting, and got nominated as one of the two final candidates in the category below 1000m2. The winner of the Daylight Award 2016 will be announced on Thursday the 6th of October in Leiden, The Netherlands.
