A residential house in the Roombeek district of Enschede. Villa Welpeloo is a house for a couple who wishes to show and preserve a collection of paintings and graphic work of young contemporary artists. Superuse strived for the greatest possible use of recycled materials. Scouts investigated the possibilities and availability of different materials from the neighbourhood of the location. The found materials result in new forms and new ways of construction.
The load-bearing structure is made of steel girders from a paternoster, formerly used in the textile industry, an industry that was very important to the region. One of these machines was enough for us to build the entire villa with. The facades are made of wood from redundant cable reels from the Twente cable factory.
