RUNNER UP tender ‘cluster 1 Bosrijk Eindhoven’
In collaboration with an inspiring team Knevel Architecten has worked on a tender for a new residential building in Bosrijk Eindhoven. The team: Dura Vermeer, Flux Landscape Architecture Mireille Langendijk (advies Bio Inspired Innovation) and Bureau Stadsnatuur.
Bosrijk is a remarkable natural environment in the north east of Eindhoven. The tender asked for a new residential building that is integrated in the landscape as a ‘sculpture in a sculpture park’.
With our proposal, we have the ambition to create a circular, sustainable and nature-inclusive design. Not only is the design integrated into the landscape, but it also contributes to a healthy and biodiverse living environment. The result is a cluster of volumes with built-in nests for insects, birds and bats, different private terraces and an open courtyard in which the landscape of Bosrijk continues. Furthermore, the cluster is surrounded by an area designated for the cultivation of trees, which will provide about 130 trees for Bosrijk in a few years.
The design is a habitat that not only connects the residents with each other, but also with the nature of Bosrijk.
