Recently the construction work on two apartment buildings in Modena restarted. However the project broke ground already several years ago, work on the building came to an hold after the contractor went bankrupt in 2014. Ever since the building had been left half finished. In 2016 I was asked to redesign the interior of one of the apartments in the plan. During the upcoming weeks the buildings’ envelope will be insulated. As expected work on the interior of the apartment will start later this year.




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. The winner of the Condo Competition will be announced by the end of May.

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.
