Let's call it a home

In 2013, the old industrial area STRIJP-S in Eindhoven was transformed into a residential area and welcomed its first inhabitants. To make the unfurnished outdoor space an attractive place to linger, we proposed a temporary installation, where residents make their presence heard. On the main square of the area we placed four masts with bells which passers-by can play by moving the clappers. By ringing the bell at night, the inhabitants also control the lighting in the square. The bells refer to well-known images, such as the church clock, the ringing of the bell by the ice-cream man or the door bell.

About Lilith Ronner van Hooijdonk

The office was founded in 2010 in Rotterdam. We design narrative architecture that tells the story of the assignment at hand. A story with different layers: that of the context, a response to building tradition, the wishes of our client, sustainable applications and technical opportunities. The architecture surprises with imagination. Our work reaches from transformations to public spaces like a Performative Space in Eindhoven, and from building a multi-family house in Amsterdam to researching our practice and writing stories about it.
