Nassauhaven

The Nassauhaven, in the Feijenoord district in Rotterdam, was originally an industrial area for companies that had to be located on waterways and needed a railway connection. In the second half of the 20th century, when road transport became more popular, many companies left the area and the Nassauhaven turned into an unused harbor basin. Light as a feather, yet robust In 2019, Public Domain Architects (PDA) started a first pilot to develop a neighborhood of 18 houses floating on the Nassauhaven’s tidal water. The houses were designed to be future-proof, sustainable and great to live in. In crowded cities such as Rotterdam, where there is limited space and a growing demand for quality housing, this project presented itself as a very... Altro

La Petite Halle

Faced with global warming and increasingly demanding local regulations, the mindsets home owners are changing. They want to move into houses that respect the environment and are energy efficient without sacrificing architectural quality. French architect Jean-Marc Proche and property developer Karine Maury sought to develop passive housing built from a polystyrene/concrete formwork system.

Het Zwin Nature center

La riserva ornitologica e naturale "Het Zwin" è un'area naturale protetta tra le Fiandre e i Paesi Bassi. L'incarico comprendeva la riprogettazione del parco naturale esistente e la creazione di un nuovo centro visitatori.   L'autentico paesaggio marittimo con le sue dune di sabbia, le pianure fangose e le saline, modellato dalla brezza marina, è costituito principalmente da linee ondulate.

Tin House

The back land site of the Tin House is entered from a modest London street through a ‘massive’ Soanian brick double-height arch – a gateway to a remarkable domestic inner world.Creating a secluded place was a priority. The architects’ response was to develop a low, inward-looking, tranquil courtyard that is open to the south yet offers privacy, both visual and acoustic. The design is a composition of different pavilions: six earth-coloured metal-clad pyramidal top-lit forms. The Tin House maximizes space through these six interconnected pyramidal pods where the colour coated steel GreenCoat PLX BT was specified for the roofs and faćades. This gave cohesiveness to the separate but conjoined units allowing the project to create a dialogue wit... Altro
