Circular with Van Buiten

TU Delft is going Circular. And the Firma Van Buiten kicks off with a circular building for their catering business.

A wonderful location has become available along the beautiful Thijssevaart canal, where the company can build a good future for at least 10 years. Anna Kleijweg: "With our employees, real sweeties, we have fallen in love with the location. The space we have, the view on the water, the trees that surround us: this is exactly what we want."

And there is plenty of room to conceive a building that fits the firm. A hospitality building, where employees can make the best sandwiches in all of Delft. A place everyone can go to, in order to escape their stressful office environment. Where day trippers who arrive on foot or by bicycle can enjoy their lunch or high tea. And where the chickens have an idyllic home. To cut it short: lots of possibilities.

About the building. As the company can remain here for at least 10 years, an optimal solution has been sought that is both perfect and temporary. It will be built in a circular fashion. Every building material that will be used, can someday be reused elsewhere. Or it has already functioned somewhere else and is now continuing its life cycle in our building.
