Status (competition, project, completion) and phase:


Many factors contribute to the organization of an house. Specific requirements of a location meet with urban requirements, clients' wishes, their lifestyle, economic factors, technical possibilities, chosen structural system, heating, ventilating etc. This process we call "critical geometry". We consider the house as an industrial product in which all these factors meet and negotiate towards the final product. We've started working on this house in 2010. Due to negotiation with the neighbors, it took three years for the construction to begin. It is a classic brick house with low energy consumption, it will only use 19.3 kWh/m2a.
