I am an architect with a passion for sustainability and team work. Graduated at Delft University of Technology (Architecture), I have reseached and designed for the topic of structural office building vacancy. The project goal was to produce a sustainable building system that can be applied to standard sized office buildings. My passion for sustainable design and team work is reflected in my internship at Stevens Van Dijck, where I researched the facilitation and management of sustainable ambitions, and my board year in the Solar Decathlon project ReVolt House, for the purpose of building a solar powered, surplus energy home. With great pleasure I’ve played in the men’s first team at Punch Basketball in Delft, competing in the national ‘Promotiedivisie’. Here I’ve leared that discipline, effort, perseverance and team work play a key role in achieving success on and off the court. With a passion for design and architecture I aim to continue a career on the topic of sustainability, transformation and/or team management. LinkedIn profile:

Bachelor 6

Light wooden structures ‘A flexible holiday home away from the crowds’


portfolio of Tim Hilhorst


portfolio of Tim Hilhorst

This holiday home was designed for a couple that often invites guests to their second home. The house is secluded, only attainable by boat, but not far from the city of Rotterdam. Flexibility has been the main concept throughout the design. The house has a flexible floor plan that suits all kinds of activities. The lot offers the clients total privacy by high and very dense hedges. The design uses these dense hedges as their house separating wall. In summer, the glass space between the volumes can be opened by sliding the entire glass structure over the wooden volume, emphasizing the idea of living in the

outdoors, having plenty of privacy by the hedge itself.

Master 1

Intense High Dense ‘High density living with the feeling of a park’


portfolio of Tim Hilhorst

16 portfolio of Tim Hilhorst

How is green incorporated in our daily life? Many people live high dense urban areas, and whenever we feel the need, we escape to a nearby park to relax en enjoy the surroundings. Why don’t we start living in the park? The main focus of this project was to exactly that. How do you create an ‘intense high dense’ neighbourhood with a FSI of 1, but still give people the feeling that nature is at their front door? Therefore the team created a park theme which involves public, communal and private green. The way those elements are joined results in our master plan for the EnCeHa area in Gron-

The community of the province Groningen housed 187.622 inhabitants by

portfolio of Tim Hilhorst


January 2010 (CBS, 2010). Eventhough the city has a lower amount of inhabitants, the city is still one of the ten largest cities in the Netherlands. The city is well known as a student city. With 50.000 students, of which 30.000 living in the city, Groningen has a very high rate of the age group 20-27. 15,9% in comparison to the 6% average of the Netherlands.

The EnCeHa area lies next to the highway on the opposite side of the sugar factory. Big influences on the plan are the train, running several times each our on ground level to the southwest. Also, the ecological zone on the west side is intended to be kept. The site has a monument, the Hoendiephuis, which is kept in the master plan proposal. It houses young adults facing psychiatric problems who are encouraged to change the course of their life.

Master thesis

Permanent Temporality ‘Sustainable transformation of vacant office space to student housing’


portfolio of Tim Hilhorst

22 portfolio of Tim Hilhorst

The goal of this project is to design an architectural intervention that proposes a way of dealing with the increasing problem of structural office vacancy. Office vacancy is a growing problem in the Netherlands. In the first half of 2012, office vacancy continued to grow to 7,62 million square meters, 15,4% of the total office stock. The research is executed to determine if there are possibilities making a design that can be applicable to standard size office buildings in the Netherlands. Secondly, the research will investigate the potential of combining the surplus of office space with the shortage of student housing. The research consists of both theoretical and empirical studies. applied in a final design during the MSc4 part of the graduation track. The research aims to support the design phase of my graduation thesis design by means of researching i.e. the financial, political and structural advantages and disadvantages of vacant office transformation. Also, the research ellaborated on my fascination for sustainability and flexibility to support the outcoming design. The products shown on these pages are the architectural results of an ellaborate research conducted to create the most fitting soluti-
