What is a better way to show who you are and what you do as an Architectural Office than realizing your own Office?

With this intention Courage architects have realized their our own dream in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. A house and office build out of steel and glass, with much domestic comfort. Other than usual industrial materials and building methods are used to realize a house. Sustainability, industrial and flexible building process have resulted in a remarkable project. Our project shows that ‘design’ can be affordable.

The choice of black for the building envelope blends in well and is adapted by its more classical surrounding. This has been achieved by the use of simple and logical forms, a high level of detailing and the avoidance of excessiveness in appearance. When asked about the choice of steel cladding and in particular, Colorcoat® for this project, Courages’ focus was two fold. Firstly, as the desired colour was black, superior UV resistance was paramount and it is provided with a comprehensive guarantee.

Lots of glass with beautiful views
and a special light entrance are the reason for lots of ‘oh’s and ah’s’ from visitors and people who pass by. They’ve had exceptional positive reactions from various people. No matter what their age or background is, everybody has an opinion, for the greater part positive. All in all a remarkable project which is very pleasant to live and work in.

This house is built as main project out of 4 houses. The houses where built in 2 times 2 phases, the last 2 houses were completed in April 2008. These houses are, as far as we can find in literature, the first 4 stand alone houses with a steel appearance built for the market.
