Upcycling Gemert in The Netherlands by Denkkamer architectuur & onderzoek

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Denkkamer architectuur & onderzoek

The initiators developed a process in which spent mushroom compost from mushroom cultivation is upgraded and turned into a valuable soil improver. They do this by biologically drying spent mushroom compost in so-called tunnels. By adding a small amount of concentrated manure, a popular soil improver rich in nitrogen, phosphate and potassium is created. The spent mushroom compost is not only upgraded to a popular soil improver but it is also made lighter in specific weight. As a result, fewer freight transports are needed to deliver the product. A large amount of heat is released naturally during the biological drying process. This heat is used to provide the neighbouring existing mushroom nurseries with heat and consequently natural gas-fuelled boilers are no longer required. The surplus heat is distributed to nearby crop growers.

De Karel Doorman in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Ibelings van Tilburg Architecten

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Article source: De Karel Doorman

De Karel Doorman consists of the renovation of a shopping building: Ter Meulen and an added residential building. Restoration and new-build The new residential building is up to 70 metres in height and includes 114 apartments. It is built on top of the Ter
Meulen building in Rotterdam. This is an unusual project as the new building literally rests on the columns and foundations of the existing structure. The only additions are a pair of concrete lift shafts which also provide stability. The construction technique is unconventional for a project in the Netherlands, as the main structure is in steel instead of heavy stone-like materials as concrete and limestone.

Mennonite Church in Elspeet, The Netherlands by FARO Architecten (designed using Arkey)

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: FARO Architecten

Design a church according to the traditional Mennonite principles: a sustainable building, with the user in mind and a space for gathering and meeting. The first Mennonite churches were hidden and inconspicuous; simple places of congregation around the bible. The interiors were sober and as pure as possible. No distraction or ornaments in order to enhance concentration and togetherness. The new church on Mennorode refers to that time.

Bonifacius School in Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands by Faro Architecten

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Article source: Faro Architecten

Alphen aan den Rijn is turning into a real city. The developed Bonifacius location has also become an area with urban construction. The new Bonifacius school is the first step in the new urban plan that FARO is making for this part of Alphen.

The appearance of the building fits into the current urban architecture with a brick plinth under a light metal façade. The brick is enhanced with arcs: characteristic, recognizable and strong. The lighter upper façade has horizontal lines and contrasts with color and texture. Building the new school is part of the grander scheme for the Bonifacius location that also houses new apartments, assisted care residences, shops with a parking garage and, in the old school building a hotel or restaurant.
