Construction has just started on our most recent Superlofts project in Delft! Located on Graaf Floriskade, Superlofts Delft (Coendersbuurt) contains nine dwellings – eight Superlofts ranging from 70m2 – 110 m2 and a four-storey town house (155m2). With a low energy and all-electric approach without the use of gas, the building also incorporates solar panels on the roof.
This is the first Superlofts building that features a facade grid made of brick. Organised as a collective of private owners/clients (CPO) the project is a collaboration between the residents’ collective, Marc Koehler Architects, Stebru and the municipality of Delft.
According to one of the residents, “What makes the project so special is that we were able to design our dream house together with the architect.” Completion is anticipated for end 2018/beginning 2019. More updates to follow!
We are proud to announce that Superlofts Block Y in Utrecht has just been nominated for the 2018 BNA Building of the Year! Block Y is one of nine projects in the running to win this prestigious annual architecture prize organised by the Dutch Association of Architects (BNA).
The Superlofts concept offered a collective of 30 homeowners a blank canvas to customise their apartments according to their own needs, and engaged them to co-create the shared spaces which include a large communal garden and a lobby with shared exhibition space. A unique complex – where no two apartments are alike – results from the building’s collective character, active community of residents and high level of sustainability.

Following the winning of the WAF Awards and the Directors Choice, Bouwkroniek has devoted an extensive article to Superlofts. In this publication, in addition to the design and architecture, the emphasis is placed on the relevance of creating a community, which forms the basis of the Superlofts concept.
‘Superlofts is also a community platform: every design solution that the residents and building groups come up with, comes in a digital design library. This allows residents to share, exchange, purchase and enjoy these interior elements.’

Almost there! We have received a bunch of exciting suggestions from an enthusiastic group of people, that are too cool to ignore. We have to take them seriously when finishing the concept and therefore the sign-up festival for Superlofts Groningen is now taking place in the last week of August. Then we can share with you all information about the concept, prices and some fantastic floorplans for inspiration. Some tunes, some food and drinks, and a sign-up session, and all of that while still enjoying summer at a nice location. We are excited!
