The Vliender

Of all the projects that we have realized so far, this is the project that best demonstrates what private clients are capable of when it comes to affordable ecological building. The entire building was built in-house and cost about half of it than a traditionally built house with the same size. This house also has a healthy indoor climate and is built sustainably with ecological building materials and with respect for nature.

After the house was realized, the owners Audrey and Piotr established an ecological construction company called Svarok, natural construction. Audrey became secretary of the national association Strobouw Nederland and within this association they both provide the workshops.

The main reason for choosing ORIO was you as a person. You are very pleasant to deal with and Piotr especially was drawn to your drawings. The organic and that together with you personally, made us choose you and your agency.
