Poppies pays attention to the environmental impact associated with the realization of the building and at the end of their lifespan. This ending is, incidentally, difficult to determine. Where buildings made of concrete and steel are often demolished, wooden buildings are better suited for the next life cycle and residual materials can still be reused. Via life cycle analysis (LCA), ATELIER is working on making the various environmental effects visible.
This 2nd building of the PED area Buiksloterham is about circularity in the broadest sense of the word. Raw materials, water, energy with smart grid, ecology, materials, waste streams and social sustainability. Poppies lays the foundation for a new shared-living concept in the mid-rental segment.
