In Holland, being green is not a choice, it's a governmentally enforced obligation. The government requires a certain level of energy efficiency in all new construction. These condos, designed by architects Han van Zweiten and Gregory Kissare, are a beautiful example.
These condos are located in IJsselstein, a small town in Holland just a short drive from Amsterdam. American architect Gregory Kiss of New York–based firm Kiss + Cathcart, collaborated with van Zwieten on this housing project.
Kiss discussed the Dutch efficient design philosophy... “General building practices in the Netherlands are well in advance of our own, “The baseline requires much more efficient buildings than we are used to, on all levels, from the choice of materials to the amount of insulation in the building envelope to the durability of the building system.”
This attractive multilevel solarium of condos might be efficient, but we can't help but fall in love with the modern design as well. It's all-around a brilliant project and we give kudos to the designers.
If we were given the opportunity to design the interior of one of the units, it would no doubt include modern light fixtures and may look something like this....!

Cori Magee graduated from FIDM with a degree in Interior Design and began working at a top hospitality design firm. When the economy forced much of the design world out of work, it turned out to be a blessing for Cori. She created her own design blog, “Pretty Haute Mess” (prettyhautemess.com) to stay inspired and involved with design. In doing so, she discovered not only a whole new network of designers, but she also discovered her love for digital media. Cori recently completed a certificate in Graphic Design.
