Image from Dwell In Holland, being green is not a choice, it's a governmentally enforced obligation. The government requires a certain level of energy efficiency in all new construction. These condos, designed by architects Han van Zweiten and Gregory Kissare, are a beautiful example. These condos are located in IJsselstein, a small town in Holland just a short drive from Amsterdam. American architect Gregory Kiss of New York–based firm Kiss + Cathcart, collaborated with van Zwieten on this housing project. Image from Dwell Kiss discussed the Dutch efficient design philosophy... “General building practices in the Netherlands are well in advance of our own, “The baseline requires much more efficient buildings than we are used to, on all levels, from the choice of materials to the amount of insulation in the building envelope to the durability of the building system.” This attractive multilevel solarium of condos might be efficient, but we can't help but fall in love with the modern design as well. It's all-around a brilliant project and we give kudos to the designers. If we were given the opportunity to design the interior of one of the units, it would no doubt include modern light fixtures and may look something like this....!
