We are always designing new housing solutions for forgotten spots in the city. Hoping to transform these with our own development branch or inspire others to do so. We regularly pitch our ideas to investors, the municipality and housing corporations. The idea for these 'dakwoningen' was pitched for housing corporation Woonstad inspired by their new campaign.
