Let’s call it a home
In 2013, the old industrial area STRIJP-S in Eindhoven was transformed into a residential area and welcomed its first inhabitants. To make the unfurnished outdoor space an attractive place to linger, we proposed a temporary installation, where residents make their presence heard. On the main square of the area we placed four masts with bells which passers-by can play by moving the clappers. By ringing the bell at night, the inhabitants also control the lighting in the square. The bells refer to well-known images, such as the church clock, the ringing of the bell by the ice-cream man or the door bell.
The office was founded in 2010 in Rotterdam. We design narrative architecture that tells the story of the assignment at hand. A story with different layers: that of the context, a response to building tradition, the wishes of our client, sustainable applications and technical opportunities. The architecture surprises with imagination. Our work reaches from transformations to public spaces like a Performative Space in Eindhoven, and from building a multi-family house in Amsterdam to researching our practice and writing stories about it.
