MEN­NON­ITE CHURCH IN THE WOODS, ELSPEET

Design a church accord­ing to the tra­di­tional Men­non­ite prin­ci­ples: a sus­tain­able build­ing, with the user in mind and a space for gath­er­ing and meet­ing. The first Men­non­ite churches were hid­den and incon­spic­u­ous; sim­ple places of con­gre­ga­tion around the bible. The inte­ri­ors were sober and as pure as pos­si­ble. No dis­trac­tion or orna­ments in order to enhance con­cen­tra­tion and togeth­er­ness. The new church on Men­norode refers to that time.

BAS­KET NEST BETWEEN THE MILLS, KINDERDIJK

Cra­dle to Cra­dle in the polder’

For a world her­itage site, the story is just as impor­tant as the phys­i­cal object itself; a good story for a mon­u­ment sud­denly makes a his­tory les­son tan­gi­ble and inspir­ing. The cra­dle leg­end brings an extra dimen­sion to the sus­tain­able cradle-​to-​cradle phi­los­o­phy. ‘Cra­dle to Cra­dle in the polder’ weaves all kinds of points of view together; with atten­tion for both mate­r­ial as well as imma­te­r­ial heritage.

PUMP SHED THE SLUFTER

FARO’s design is inspired by the imme­di­ate sur­round­ings: raw indus­try and sludge pip­ing. We also see the shed as a tem­ple, as the old pumps once were. A tem­ple with pil­lars made of old sludge pipes and a roof made of indus­trial con­crete. The façade is made of translu­cent mate­r­ial that can face the tough expo­sure. This will allow day light to enter the build­ing dur­ing the day and will the shed be a lighted bea­con dur­ing the night.
