Recently, a lot of attention is paid to the theme of water and soil guiding building/design. This is a matter of course for Stijlgroep for 40 years. In our designs from residential neighbourhoods, tidal parks and dune landscapes to inner-city neighbourhoods and nature-inclusive building complexes, the area's own landscape always offers the most sustainable development direction.

Take our projects in the low peat landscapes of the Western Netherlands. By, among other things, not raising it integrally, the CO2 remains in the ground and local flora and fauna connect. There is also no subsidence, which prevents huge post-investments and the death of trees.

Soil and (ground) water are then leading in how architecture and urban planning are applied.

Living, working and recreation in polder areas that have been given back to the creek landscape, ecological hotspots by reintroducing dune edges, parks as wetlands that serve as water buffers for the city: Stijlgroep identifies and exploits the opportunities and added values that arise from water and soil in the natural subsurface.

Real sustainable building in the polder? That is possible!
