Social housing in the Netherlands is renowned internationally for achieving high residential quality at a favorable price – which is the key objective of all social housing projects.
The experience and expertise of Dutch architects can be deployed the world over. Not only for the design of affordable yet high-quality housing, but also for the functional and spatial cohesion in an urban context, which is essential to creating successful, vibrant neighborhoods.
”When we first drafted the plans for Living Architecture, we all agreed that the first house had to be built by a Dutch architect. The Dutch have a very strong tradition of good modern design. They got the best affordable housing in the world – high quality, good design. Dutch top architects usually started in affordable housing.”
