V8 Architects selected to design Nieuw Kralingen

V8 Architects today announces that it has been selected as one of the four architectural firms to design the large-scale new residential project Nieuw Kralingen in Rotterdam. The work for the sketch design of the first phase is now in full swing.

Nieuw Kralingen is a development of Heijmans Vastgoed and ERA Contour in cooperation with the municipality of Rotterdam. The relocation of the Bosdreef will create a new residential area on the Kralingse Plas in Rotterdam. The location comprises approximately 800 houses. V8 Architects was selected from a long list of twelve offices because of its distinctive narrative architecture and its special attention to ornamentation and detailing. West 8, responsible for the design vision of the district, will continue to be involved in the work as a supervisor.
