Circular housing project, Glaskring

Glaskring_15 circular social housing

Woonbedrijf has established in its sustainability policy that they want to be circular within now and 10 years. An experiment has been started to achieve this. Woonbedrijf wants to build 15 social rental homes from its own raw materials. The building decree is the starting point and the houses are suitable for the target group of the corporation.

Woonbedrijf has put together a creative team to achieve this. Various parties, including 12N Urban Matters, come together to take the next step in sustainable social housing. It is very important to develop, experiment and learn from this. Residents are involved to think along, to design. But even after realization, intensive contact is maintained with the residents to learn from their experiences. Fulco Treffers, a replacement project leader, is responsible for connecting with the residents and ambitions regarding learning, recording and presentation to the outside world. Ultimately, he is also responsible for the design of the outdoor space.
