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 Pierre and Wouter

We were sitting in our backyard chatting remotely with several neighbors from their balconies during the pandemic, when they suddenly said “what a big garden you have”. Suddenly the plan for a renovation was born. A few clicks later we had a Skype meeting and started working with Global Architects. Their portfolio and enthusiasm for the project, transparency and clear approach immediately appealed to us.
