We want to show that it’s possible to build a creative and beautiful building that is extremely sustainable at the same time. For most people, influencing the design of your own house and residential building is a unique experience, a once in a lifetime opportunity. This process leaves plenty of room for creative group ideas, making the connection with the new home and the neighbourhood so much stronger. At Studio Holgersson we love to stimulate these kinds of creative plans.
We think it is very special to combine creativity and sustainability in one residential building. This project is clearly not about our ideas, it is entirely about what the co-creators want. It is great to actively help this group, with the aim of creating a very sustainable building, which is unique, characteristic and pleasant to live in at the same time. We hope that the IJgenwijs example will spread like a ‘green oil stain’ and propagate the benefits of sustainable housing.
The diverse group of co-creators will have to make well-considered decisions. The challenge is to properly communicate the information on all kinds of new topics, so that co-creators fully understand this and can take all relative information into account when taking decisions. This is why, together with Kondor Wessels Real Estate, TANK, Servicewise and all advisors, we organised a range of workshops for the co-creators that cover all subjects, in a logical order. In these workshops, information is tends to be shared in an interactive way, enabling the group to reach well-considered decisions. There is also an online platform where we share information with the co-creators.
