We were commissioned to design the fort keeper’s house back in 2009. Due to organisational changes, the project did not go ahead at the time. When the conversion of the fort was activated again in 2015, it seemed that our plan for the house had not been forgotten. We were asked to revive the original plans and develop them further.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Thomas MayerThe new-build fort keeper’s residence stems from the requirement that a manager lives there. This function is identical to the original one. So we were given the task of realising a new fort keeper’s residence for a fort with a new purpose. The new house had to be adapted to the requirements of our time. The first design in 2009 was inspired by the fort, the surroundings and the desire to use a contemporary, fitting construction method.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerA huge batch of beams formed the starting point for the design. The original fort keeper’s residence was made out of wood. By pragmatically incorporating the beams combined with sheet material, we were able to make a “new” fort keeper’s residence. The beams, that are screwed together with nuts and bolts like a construction and finished using sheet material, could fit in with the way in which the military constructs a prefab home.Save this picture!SectionWe have been working on developing this construction concept and adjusting it to suit modern (living) requirements. The design was constantly adjusted in order to bring it as close as possible to the original plan and objectives.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe result is now a house made from beams and panels, with the size and proportions of a wooden (fort keeper’s) residence. The colours and materials have been chosen to suit the character and the construction method of the surroundings. The character of the house is modern and classical at the same time, both in construction method and appearance.Save this picture!ElevationsProject gallerySee allShow lessHow to Install Ventilated Facades Using Wooden PanelsMiscCity Hotel Paris / Hardel Le Bihan ArchitectesSelected Projects Share CopyHouses, Extension•Uitgeest, The Netherlands “COPY” Photographs:  Thomas Mayer Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Akerbouw BV The Netherlands Photographslast_img read more
