Groosman has carefully fitted the design for the new Park and Ride into the natural surroundings. The parking garage, made of natural materials, is completely surrounded by greenery and its volume is kept as small as possible whilst maintaining the 582 parking spaces. Through its rounded form the parking garage fits perfectly into the station area of Driebergen-Zeist.

Loftwonen is a special form of urban residence. The idea of Loftwonen is based on high rooms and flexible floor plans. Block 61, which was designed by architecten|en|en, is part of an urban composition of three housing blocks that are constructed in a similar manner. The housing blocks are located along the railway as an extension of the well-known Klokgebouw. The three buildings are separated from the railway by means of an oblong parking garage, which parallels the railway embankment.

The forest at your feet. Opposite the beautiful Boswachterij nature reserve in Dorst, a mere stone’s throw from Breda, a new residential area of the same name is being built. On the north side of the area, on the edge of the forest, are five lots designated for private development.
The key starting points for the design of this villa were the natural setting, the relationship with the forest and a timeless, minimalist design with warm materials and first-rate detailing. In addition, the villa was required to be energy neutral and a home for life.

For a new part of Assen, a city in the north of the Netherlands, architecture firm Mannen in de ruimte has developed a house with a distinct roof.
The clients asked for a house adapted for living at an advanced age that would fit their triangular shaped plot of land. They had realized that a traditional rectangular house would not work at this location. Nevertheless they did want a house the way a child draws a house: with brick walls and pitched roof.

Jvantspijker Architects have designed a sturdy cube shaped house in the centre of Rotterdam. With its spatial 3-dimensional lay-out the building allows a modern family to meet the paradoxical demands of urban life: The house provides community as well as privacy to its inhabitants and it is both connected to and sheltered from the street and the surrounding city. The exterior of plain white bricks, encases a plan organized by split-level sections. The house is an urban monolith, albeit one glowing with interior life.

The villa is situated close to the waters of the Reeuwijkse Plassen in a dutch village consisting of not much more than a narrow through road lined predominantly by large, free-standing houses standing on ‘islands’ created by the drainage ditches of the former peatland.
The great attraction of this location lies in the vicinity of water and in the experience of this natural environment through the changing seasons. The villa’s completion represents the fulfilment of a long-held ambition of our clients, for whom a love of water has been an abiding theme of their lives.

On the northern tip of the rapidly developing Zeeburger Island in Amsterdam Studioninedots, commissioned by de Alliantie and Lingotto, designed two striking volumes. Due to their stepped profiles and changing facade rhythms they appear different depending on the viewing angle. All 142 residences plus the shared outdoor spaces on the deck are orientated towards the magnificent views.
