honorable mention BNA building of the year 2016

‘House in a House’ is the sustainable renovation of an existing terraced house from 1980 in the Spinbaankwartier in Wassenaar. The project received an honorable mention during BNA best building of the year 2016. The jury is enthusiastic about the courage that this design expresses; In these types of houses you rarely see such spaces being created. It shows that renovation can yield much more than extra cubic meters or a higher insulation value; the architect has also added a great spatial experience. This is a sympathetic project, with good cooperation between the client and architect. The honorable mention goes to the exemplary way in which a new type of spatiality has been introduced in a cauliflower district.

review by Michel and Sotrelle

We found GA in a roundabout way. After we fell completely in love with two beach bars in Noordwijk, we did a lot of research. To find out who the architect was. We made an appointment and after a very amusing conversation we sat in the car with only one thought; “Fuck we have to do this.” But we didn’t have a house yet…

There we were, an architect, a contractor and a real estate agent. All nice people! After a long search we finally found a house that was not too big, but where everything could be done. Arthur and associates got to work and came up with a concept after Christmas.
