We are very proud to announce that four of our projects are nominated for "the building of the year" award. These projects are Parking garage Driebergen Zeist, Parking garage Zutphen, House MM Amsterdam and Cheesefactory Gouda. 

This international contest has several categories where you can vote for your favorite project. This award is sponsored by Archdaily, the most visited architectural website worldwide. 

The parking garage in Zeist in one of the few energy-neutral parking garage. Applied timber is SafeWood FRX pine. SafeWood FRX is a weatherproof, fire retardant timber without the need for maintenance and tested for Euro class B. 

Next to the trainstation is the new parking garage in Zutphen. The timber cladding is made from SafeWood FRX pine. The design is made interesting by varying the dimensions of the timber slats. 

The facade of House MM is made from WaxedWood Color. WaxedWood has been developed to increase the durability of timber and improve it's appearance.

The Cheesefactory used to be exactly what the name suggests; a cheese factory. Now it is transformed into building with luxurious lofts. The special thing about this project is that they have recycled the cheese boards for interior cladding. Before it was allowed to be used there it had to be treated with a SafeWood to make it safe and in accordance with fire regulation.
