Circular DesignCompetition

No gas. No waste. No problem. We’re excited to build European’s most sustainable hotel ever! That’s why we’re looking for innovative ideas, creative masterminds and fresh new ways of thinking about the world. And we believe students may be the answer.

PRIZE

The winner will have its idea featured and eternalized in The Student Hotel, how cool is that? Of course, all winners will be invited to stay at TSH for a night and join the fabulous opening party. And.. if YES this really works, the idea might be distributed to the partners’ real estate portfolio’s!

The runner up’s per category will be rewarded with a €500 incentive prize.

The number 3 per category will be rewarded with a €250 incentive prize.

All winners will also be given a platform at the Dutch Design Week in October 2018, the largest design event of Northern Europe.

THE CONTEST

Circular design makes the world go round!

At The Student Hotel, a unique co-living and co-working concept, we aim to create the best space where students can find their purpose and change the world. We are rapidly growing and planning to have 41 properties in European cities by 2021. There is exciting new regulation, as new buildings are soon to be close-to-energy-neutral. One could see this as a constraint. But we’d rather qualify it as an opportunity to build the most sustainable hotel of Europe that we have made up to this point!

Together with ABN-AMRO and our construction partners, we are commissioning a contest which will make The Student Hotel buildings sustainable high-rollers. The contest is open to any (team of) student(s) from a Dutch university, whether they are an architect, industrial designer or a space engineer – as long as the sustainable solution can come into being inside of a building.

Criteria

  • The contest is open to teams of students, coming from a Dutch University 
  • The idea must be ambitious
  • The idea must be feasible.
  • The idea must fit in the concept of the Circular Economy, have a transformative impact on TSH’ guests

Submission

Teams can subscribe to one of the three categories by Steward Brand:

•  Skin
•  Service (electrical and mechanical)
•  Stuff (interior)
