Indigo, an elegant family
Elementary studio or fully equiped family home; together with you we can customize your own Indigo. Every Indigo is unique yet belongs to the same elegant family. Check out our FAQ down below for more information on foreign projects.
Maximum freedom, minimal environmental impact
Indigo makes personal architecture and a healthy way of building accessible to a wide audience. Thanks to an optimal interplay between design, construction and use of materials, Indigo combines design freedom with a quick build-up time and minimal environmental impact.
Each Indigo consists of separate, prefabricated elements that are assembled on site. These elements are characterized by a "fixed" bend that allows a free division of the floor plan and at the same time produces a beautiful, curved line between wall and roof. The size and angle of inclination of the elements are adjustable, within certain margins. The elements are made of laminated timber beams and filled with cellulose, a natural insulation material. Numerous options are possible for the finishing of the roof, facade and interior.
The flexibility of the elements and the free layout of the floor plan means we can respond perfectly to individual needs. Although we often co-design the interior with our clients, Indigo can also be build as a basic wind and waterproof hull for a DIY approach. We notice a growing need in this: many people like to make a meaningful contribution to their own home and often save a little on costs that way.
Within each design process we draw up the contours of an energy plan at an early stage, so that we can find an optimal balance between passive interventions and smart technology in an integrated manner.
Frequently asked questions
Can Indigo be built outside of the Netherlands?
Yes, depending on your exact location and the size of your Indigo. For EU customers all structural elements are prefabricated in the Netherlands (our home base) and can be transported by road.
Can Indigo be built outside of the EU?
Yes, although shipping Indigo's prefab elements will probably not be the best option outside of the EU. Instead, prefabrication and construction will have to take place in collaboration with a local contractor. This is very well possible but requires some extra dedication, flexibility and patience from both us and you as our client. For single Indigo's outside of the EU we've decided to work only on projects starting at approximately € 300.000.
How do I start a project?
If you are interested in working with us, please send us an email and tell us a bit more about your plans: where exactly are you located? Do you own a building plot, and if so, can you send some pictures along? Did you already put up a program of requirements? What's your budget?
If we think your plans fit our craft we can schedule a call, get to know each other, and inform you some more about our design process.
