dgj158 Minihouses Reypoort, Den Haag, NL , 2010


The housing cooperation Staedion has called for proposals in an ideas competition for the monumental gate Reypoort.
Our proposal consists of four minimum Impact houses, set in a row, as flexible living and working place for students or young families. They are designed as energy saving houses
in building and usage. Different possibilities and combinations are provided in order to satisfy different living needs and situations, anticipating possible mutations in time.
Our experience from Minihouse Frankfurt (dgj071) is here developed into a catalyst as a future strategy for such a socially disadvantaged neighbourhood.
The target is to develop an intervention that would provide sustainability on both ecological and social level, which could become a reference project and strategy for future housing developments and estates.
