A series of images of Het Groene Huis (The Green House). This place is a Centre for Nature and Environment Education in my hometown Amersfoort. It is built environmentally and energy friendly. The outside is cladded with paneling from locally produced birch wood which should last about 50 years. The exterior of the building is designed to let it blend with the surroundings. I imagine this works better in summer than in the winter conditions when I shot these images. I would have preferred snow on the ground and on the building but that was not to be although it was very cold.

Very nice images, Luc. I love seeing these sorts of images - especially interiors (I have become hooked on the apartmenttherapy.com website house tours).

      An image I've shot a few weeks ago, from the Mebin concrete mortar factory. I've put some extra effort in extracting the details in post processing. I hope it shows (please click on the image).

      The Fläkt building (built in 1973) is a remarkable building featuring three cylindrical cores connected by a triangular core. 
       
      The lay-out of the floor plan is extremely efficient, short connections  from stairs and elevators to offices and between office clusters. The 3-flight stairs are placed such that the tenants would be tempted to use stairs rather then the elevators, a strategy that now has become mainstream as to enhance people’s mobility and hence their health. The interplay of shafts, sanitary units, elevators, stairs and fire resistant doors on electromagnets is absolutely brilliant. The facade is clad in 6 mm thick bent aluminum plates, is effectively acting as a solar radiation shield, in combination with relatively small windows – yet providing for a generous panoramic view – reducing the incoming heat drastically. The energy performance of the Fläkt Building was unheard of in 1973. 
       
      The Fläkt Building is well on its way to become a modern monument, 6 years to go before it has reached the monumental age of 50, which is the criterium in The Netherlands before a building might be declared a modern monument. The painful side of the story is that the Fläkt Building is no longer in use since years because its  location in a rather desolate industrial area is no longer a desired one, meaning that the building is in real danger of being demolished.
