free and flexible housing
Architecten van Mourik has, based on recent insight, changed the phrase ‘form follows function’ into ‘form follows function in time’. Architecture is not only about creating value, maintaining it is also important. This research focuses on residential architecture in line with a previous research into ‘Life cycle sustainability’. The central theme is shaped by the striving for freedom.
The resident determines his or her own living environment. We come from a housing tradition in which the placement of a bed, table and sofa is predetermined. The world is however changing in a rapid pace and with that the needs and lifestyles of residents. Plug & Play offers the resident all the freedom he or she desires and can manage.
