Circular transformation of a pre-war building into a 46-unit housing cooperative. The block was squatted in 2004 by a group of young artists. The new residents united as the NAC Foundation. Together with the property owner dNU, later Woonstad, and the foundation, a recovery and management plan was drawn up for a period of 10 years. During this time, the foundation contributed to the liveability of the neighbourhood with residents and their activities. In 2015, the first discussions about a sustainable transformation of the housing block began. A new residents' association, W1555, was established for this purpose.
The foundations have been improved, solar panels are being installed and the homes will be better insulated. Circular materials will be used as much as possible.
Although the initial costs were slightly higher, Woonstad opted for an appealing circular transformation.
