An independent jury composed by figures from the world of architecture, technology and media based in the Netherlands and in Belgium, among whom chairman prof. Jan Brouwer (architect, NL) and vice-chairman Thomas Dierickx (architect, BE) assigned the non-residential buildings category award to KAAN Architecten’s Dreamhouse.
The jury evaluated the entries on the basis of these criteria: the significant use of aluminium, the energy efficiency and consumption, the contemporary design, the socio-economic impact and the value added to the original building.
