HOLT Groningen

HOLT is a high-quality, green ensemble on the outskirts of Groningen, at a location where the polder landscape enters into a relationship with the urban area. The design is a collaboration between DELVA, Powerhouse Company, Houben / Van Mierlo architects and Vector-i. Proloog Central to the design is a radical green plan in which the lush arrangement of trees and plants provides a pleasant place of total tranquillity.

Life Science Faculty University of Groningen

The new Life Science Faculty for the University of Groningen supports the strategy of transforming the somewhat technocratic 1970’s Zernike complex into a landmark: a true campus of individual buildings in a strongly green setting. The building is evocative of biological phenomena. It could be described as a helix raised up in the form of a Z, or as the silhouette of a body in a graceful pose. Viewed at the detailed level, body parts – arms, legs, abdomen, eyes and ears – represent specialisations. As regards mass and appearance, it was important to maximise the open sightlines above ground level, and to put the mass demanded by the building’s functionality into perspective with its surroundings. The camouflage strategy, with green outer w... More
