An action-packed in-house day with site visits
Fokkema & Partners invites architecture students in their master's program, recent graduates and young people taking a special interest in building heritage and circularity, to apply for an action-packed in-house day with two site visits.
What does it take to realize a fully circular and zero waste renovation? How to upgrade a building from an energy level G to A and re-position it in the urban fabric with efficient interventions?
We want to inspire you, the future generation of architects, to see the beauty in transformations, learning about a sustainable future for our building heritage. To illustrate, we will visit two building renovations in The Hague
- The Hotelschool The Hague shows an incredible transformation of an energy-deficient building that was hidden away from the streets, depleted of its architectural qualities, into a radiant example of 1960’s modernism with a contemporary user experience.
- How can we rethink circular design?
At the Nationale Nederlanden we aimed for a 100% circular and 0% waste project. And we are quite proud of the result! You will see the circular aesthetics of a waste-based design with smart joinery. You will learn how we mined and added value to existing materials. On top of that, Nationale Nederlanden is a large-scale testing ground for innovative waste-based and circular materials. It achieved for the highest WELL certification and takes life cycle analysis into account.
Lots of inspiration to take away!
