‘The architect who designs houses has a significant impact on the life and the “home” of the occupants’, according to Heren 5 Architects. ‘So, architects should really be up to speed with what “home” means for people.’ That is why the main characters in this book are the residents of their housing projects. In seven striking portraits they talk about their aspirations for their living environment and give their opinions on the architects’ plans and ideas. Heren 5 Architects in turn explain how they explore that feeling of being ‘at home’ and use it as inspiration in the design process. back
