‘We don’t build a company, we build our buildings’
Tom and Claus know each other from projects they worked on in the past. ‘We are complementary’, Claus says. ‘The image is Tom’s responsibility, and the process is mine. An ideal team.’ What sets them apart from the real estate developer is their love for ‘the craft’, the creation of a beautiful project: ‘We don’t build a company, we build our buildings.’ The focus of Lemniskade Projects is on metropolitan areas with complex factors.
‘There is always the option to change’
‘Our buildings are circular. We prefer building with wood, because this material stores CO2. Other materials should be reusable. The structure: designed for disassembly’, Tom says. ‘In our vision of sustainability, flexibility or better, adaptability is the priority: a building should be able to transform over time: from a residence to an office, for instance, and to a hotel and back to a residence… In order to allow for this, all our projects have a floor height of 3,5 meters at the least. Residents can create their own floorplan layout based on their dreams, the decide what is important to them.’
