Van der Vorm Vastgoed and Maat Feeling Home sign construction agreement tiny houses Leiden

Leiden will soon have a special form of housing. Van der Vorm Vastgoed and Maat Feeling Home have joined forces to realize a unique project: eight tiny houses on the roof of shopping center de Kopermolen. This initiative is not only innovative, but also contributes to a more sustainable and cohesive community. Yesterday, the contracting agreement for this project was signed by Marcel de Graaff, Henk van Dun, Rene M. Voortmeijer, Jorian Broekmeijer and Brian Martens.

These tiny houses were designed by EUP design and Daan van der Vlist with sustainability in mind. They meet the BENG standard and are made of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), a material known for its environmentally friendly properties. The homes are socially rented to people willing to contribute to the community of Merenwijk and Leiden. Examples include maintaining a vegetable garden or supporting activities at the mall.

Production of the homes is almost entirely prefabricated in a factory in Sliedrecht, after which they will be installed on site. Completion is scheduled for the end of 2024.
