Text description provided by the architects. In an expansion of Woerden, the Netherlands, by West 8 cityplanners and landscaping, we have designed the Quayhouse. The house is on a covered parking and adjacent to the water. The access is via a ramp, creating division in the three longitudinal, which also forms sightlines.

The kitchen is designed by the stairs to the first floor and forms a separation between the living and dining room. The loft provides light in the middle of the house and the relationships between the levels.

The material consists of a slatted wall structure 46 x 33 mm depending on the situation, the maximum size beeing 50 mm. The wood has Frake (preserved by Plato Intenational) and is "untreated" affixed.
