Rooms in the windsill

The intriguing landscape of the Noordoostpolder has led us to research its spatial context and urgencies. The polder was erected 75 years ago, and since then, little has changed the landscape. The strict divisions of the fields and the enclosure of the courtyards made of trees still define the image of the mathematically poetic scenery. But change is to come. Large farm owners want to erect their barns outside the green boundaries of the yards while elderly residents want to get rid of the rows of trees because they can’t keep up the necessary maintenance. To make these and more questions about landscape preservation versus the need for change visible, we designed and built a pavilion that explores different futures. The path through the windbreak ends in a built construction which resembles the rhythm of the row of trees. Two red roofs continue the sequence of the buildings in the yard.

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.
