Wij__land is a sustainable building group with 26 very diverse households. The group strives to create a climate neutral, rainproof building with materials that are low in maintenance and nature friendly.

Building group Wij_land is a sustainable social community. Residents share communal spaces like the rooftop conservatory and roofgarden, yoga space, guesthouse,
up-cycle room and electric cars.

Pergola
The apartments range from 50 tot 150 m2. They are all connected by an oversized pergola that houses all balconies and doubles as a secondary circulation space. On the roof, next to the top flight of the staircase, the collective roofgarden and conservatory are a rewarding destination of the journey up the stairs. The pergola route motivates residents to walk up and down the building, meeting their neighbours and stimulates the community vibe.

Co-design process
The building is completely co-designed with the building group. In a series of eight workshops we collectively discussed ambitions, typologies, circulation, sustainability, etc. Based on the groups input Space&Matter designed a building in which each individual household has a large variety of apartment sizes to choose from in which they can all realise their personal dwelling layout .
