The Craftmans Symbiosis

The idea of this design on the harbor site of Eindhoven is generated by the design of the Campina firms located next to the design plot. The combination of the heavy, grey concrete, versus the warm, fine brickwork creates interesting intersections. Also, the crafmanship is visible through the whole building: not only in the hybrid construction, but also in the integrated furniture. This makes the in- as exterior a total gesamt-kunst-werk.

For the hybrid structure, old techniques like the ‘troggewelf’ floor are used, but they are put in a new, more abstract look and feel. This craftsman’s place gives a chic, warm and nostalgic expression, for people to do their groceries, have a meal or watch an exposition on ground level. The higher floors accommodate a library to study or work, and small rent spaces for growing companies. A lovely place to stay for a day with your study mates, or meet other small businesses. Every time you will explore new intersections and new shapes of both structure and daily life.
