Rotterdam based design team wins ZOHO tender!

The design team consisting of Orange Architects, ECHO urban design, Moederscheim Moonen, More Architecture and Studio Nauta – commissioned by Rotterdam developers Leyten and Stebru – has won the tender for the Zomerhofkwartier (ZOHO) in Rotterdam!

ZOHO is a remarkable piece of ‘almost inner city’ that is Rotterdam through and through, yet it also has an identity all of its own, shaped by contemporary entrepreneurship, social initiatives and vibrant communities. Based on an explicit concept that strengthens the existing qualities of ZOHO, the winning design connects green structures and generates a sustainable and collective neighbourhood.

Three living environments are stacked on top of one another in the project: the Lab Layer, Land Layer and City Layer. Placed on top of the existing industrial ‘maker layer’ is a raised peat landscape, with on top of that a tower landscape.

The project stands out on account of the rich variety of places. Containing a vibrant programme and dotted with public and collective spaces, the new district will be a resilient quarter in the centre of Rotterdam. Welcome to ZOHO!
