2nd PRIZE 



Second PRIZE for the competition;


"Masterplan for the University Hospital Münster", together with Boom Landscape!

Aim is the reorganization of the 24 ha. campus including 56.000 m2 of new buildings in an already heterogenous context. Rather than creating more fragmentation, in our plan the new buildings are used to mend and structure. In doing so we created space for a large public park which unites different parts of the campus and provides it with a new, friendly face towards the city.

New Study



We have been asked to start a series of studies for the transformation of a monumental, post-war church into a service centre for the local community. 

The church is located in the north-east of Holland and has been vacant for several years. With respect for the former meaning of the church in religious as well as architectural sense, the client is seeking solutions to convert the church-building in a community centre with the focus on health care services, possibly along with the addition of housing for elderly nearby. A highly interesting and challenging assignment is about to start!
