Living in a Structure
The project is a redevelopment of a villa located in a green neighborhood of Rotterdam.
The existing villa was composed of an eclectic set of buildings stuck together forming a strange architectural patchwork: An original building from the early 20th century, a first extension built in 1991 mirroring the house and a final touch in 2003 to add 3 rooms and several facilities just before the current owner moved in.

- Software used: Different usual CAD software for architect but the most important one was used by the contractor and is called “xsteel”. It is a very powerful 3d software which enables you to produce all the production drawings in 3d. Very important for this type of project. The tolerance of construction was very low, 5mm.

A corner house on one of the prettiest locations along the canal is provided with a new living layer in a metal rooftop extension. A glass wall is wrapped with a light, perforated aluminum skin. Windows occasionally pinch through this layer or are covered by it, providing various degrees of openness and closeness.

RESIDENTIAL CHURCH UTRECHT
In the Netherlands there are hundreds of empty churches. Since 1970 more than 1000 churches are closed by church communities. More than 1/3 was demolished and half of the Catholic churches were thrown down. The coming years another 1000 churches will lose their original function. Fewer people go to church and the costs for conservation are no longer affordable. Fortunately, demolition is less common nowadays, partly because churches are often on the monuments list. Re-use is the only way to prevent long-lasting vacancy or demolition. The purpose of the Re-use of the St-Jakobuskerk was to revalue the dignified monument with little interventions as possible.

In the area Hatert, on the edge of the city of Nijmegen, the housing corporations Portaal and Talis organize a great renewal operation. Most of the current housing does not comply with contemporary standards or needs a substantial make over.
For this operation the city of Nijmegen worked in cooperation with the office of Khandekar towards a masterplan in which most of the present houses are renovated or renewed. Besides this upgrading, the open areas in the neighbourhood will be filled with several new housing projects.

Floating from time to time
Villa Veth is a modern, customized villa, a private residence for a family of four. It is situated on a large parcel of land by a forest near the idyllic town of Hattem in the eastern part of the Netherlands.
The driveway on the entrance side leads to a carport situated below the house. This places the cars out of sight and gives the impression of the house partially hovering. It is a simple architectural approach with a great visual effect. The house looks sleek and abstract on the outside, but has a warm and cozy interior.
