The chimney principle is copied from ants and termites, which ingeniously craft corridors that regulate the temperature without active ventilation

Inspired by nature!

Environmental Education Centre

This building has been inspired by a termite hill. Natrufied architecture designed a beautiful CO2 end energy neutral building. 

The Environmental Education Centre (picture) is housing offices, a restaurant, exhibition halls and a doctors practice. But for both of the buildings, the solar chimney is The Big Innovation!

Termite mount

In the solar chimney, air is drawn into the ground via pipes and discharged again via the tower. This principle is copied from ants and termites, which ingeniously craft corridors that regulate the temperature without active ventilation.

The buildings are designed with green roofs that isolate and will store all the rain and storm waters.

Markenhage, Inspired by nature

With new additions of wood and slate stone, together with the existing red bricks, a new earthy tone of materials will make a new composition of old and new in a ton-sur-ton strategy.

School renovation

For the new Campus Markenhage in Breda, the Netherlands, Natrufied designs a complex of buildings creating a base for 3 schools; Markenhage, Michael College and the Orion Lyceum. The 14.000 m2 building is partially new build, partially a renovation of an existing school building. Old and new are woven together into a new community, with respect to each schools own identity.

Inspired by nature

Working with ingredients from nature, the theme of Art d’eco has been developed as one of the main design philosophies of the office. With this the ambition is to support the environment as well as to create beauty: this makes the art of ecology.

All designs are inspired by Nature:

  • embedding the program into the surrounding environment
  • biomimicry design approach
  • use of natural materials
  • natural shapes or more abstract representation of natural patterns
  • parametric structures and biotic material approach

Integrating high tech and low tech sustainability into the designs is a natural part of their design work.
