De Hoop

Designing for connection became the explicit and primary goal in the architecture of this adaptive reuse commission. De Hoop is a large scale experiment in community building. To facilitate this Stijn desigend a building method, a spatial plan and a process. The facade openings are left to the tenants. This allows them to show themselves and their identity. At the same time the act of building connects them to the place and the community.

I'm curious! Show me the process
