Honourable mention Design Contest
SLAK / Volkshuisvesting, Arnhem NL
The idea is to live and work in a house that responds to the seasons. The programatic use of Atelier voor Twee is doubled in springtime, summer and fall. In wintertime the activities shrink to those of a sleeping hedgehog and so does the size of the climatized space. The design makes use of the highly developed techniques of the greenhouse horticulture and introduces it for human dwelling.
The jury honored the design for the convincing expression of the idea, the classic beauty of the design and the 'less is more' presentation.

Our proposal HS Pantheon for the Gasunie, Dutch producer of natural gas, is to switch from mining to the distribution of gases from organic waste. The design of the temple adjacent to the office-building creates a meeting place for enlightened businesspeople from all over the world. The idea refers to a pantheon that is reached through a tilted cross-border magnetic railway.
