ActiveHouse Schiedam

KAW Architects' architect Reimar von Meding wanted a gas-free residence without an electricity bill.

The design had to generate as little CO2 as possible and should not become some kind of an alternative hovel, but instead be an extraordinary design to live in. With that idea in mind and inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s brick architecture, he put pen to paper to create the first Active House in Schiedam in twenties style, and with fermacell no less!

The rundown is performed completely dry, including the screed. A system that Tenbackprojecten, JK floorheating and fermacell have developed for renovation purposes. In this floorheating is integrated with a high reaction speed.

The glue for the marmoleum (Forbo) is developed C2C by Unipro and the finish of the casco is executed with biobased pickle of Dutch origin (Rolsma of Gebroeders van der Geest).
