Credible Sustainability

The design of this integrated complex was chiefly determined by two factors: respect for its urban context, and its prestigious waterside location. The striking waterfront building, identifiable from afar, and the clear modelling and response to three different uses (Greenpeace, Designport and housing) reinforce the identity of the project, whereby the choice of material (clinker brick combined with generously sized dynamic glass membranes) ensures an integrated overall image.

The interior design provides workplaces lit from two sides, spatial interest and a variety of meeting places. The building is planned integrally, making use of regenerative + grey energies, rain water collection, heat exchange systems and mitigation areas. Consideration of building biology in the choice of material, with a optimized building shell, reduces environmental impact and creates optimal living and working conditions.

The unproblematic physical partition of the estate, the economic construction process, the consistent separation of systems, optimal energy efficiency and flexibility make the property highly attractive to investors and users alike, while minimising operating costs.
