Demo Neighbourhood The Netherlands

The Dutch demo case is located in Loopkanstraat, Uden, a typical mid-size town in the Netherlands representing a marine climate. It includes the construction of new add-ons to existing buildings and with syn.ikia’s strategy, the neighbourhood will reach the plus energy standards. This can be replicated in similar neighbourhoods in the Netherlands and other comparable contexts in Europe. The construction was finalised in May 2022, which allowed tenants to already move in.

Neighbourhood approach and social commitment

Photovoltaic production in the neighbourhood and EV charging stations are considered in the simulations of the demo.

The ‘social beautiful’ concept has brought together social housing by Area, the municipality of Uden, social care by Labyrint and the developer Hendriks Coppelmans.

A group of tenant ambassadors were identified in the design phase to lead community building activities and create a dynamic social environment. They will also be responsible for raising awareness and guiding the community about the SPEN concept.
