Krft supports the Circular Manifesto as stated by the BNA (Royal Institute of Dutch Architects) and the governmental ambition Nederland Circulair 2050.
We believe that circular thinking should be an integral and inseperable part of the architectural practice. The rising generation of young architects should take a lead in proclaiming this and take exemplary stand in forms of new practice on this matter.
We have just finished a proposal for a housing development next to Lelylaan in Amsterdam, developed in cooperation with Blauwhoed, BOOM Landscape and Carve, wants to re-think the position of family housing in dense urban areas.
The design has a focus on living around collective outdoor spaces of different character: a street, a square and a garden. This results in a scala of different housing typologies, all relating to the outdoor in a different manner. By designing the outdoor spaces as qualitative shared spaces, but still allowing for individual appropriation, families can use the complete building block as one safe space for play - be it for the young or the old.
