Kwakelpad Circular Hamlet

The residents of a farmhouse in Hensbroek, municipality of Koggenland, approached us with the dream of turning their unique location into a circular co-housing project.

Kwakelpad wants to profile itself as an attractive and sustainable living environment. A modern hamlet, consisting of a farm, flexible living volumes and a multifunctional workshop, producing green energy, sustainable food, and sharing electric cars.

A 'kwakel' is an old word for a high, narrow footbridge. The Kwakelpad meanders through the open meadow landscape. The West Frisian farmhouse and the polder landscape are characteristic of this place. For our clients we've designed an ensemble of buildings that will form the new yard of the hamlet.
