Concrete announced its collaboration with Moos, a groundbreaking housing initiative poised to transform the landscape of urban living. Moos, which stands for “In the Middle Of Our Street,” draws inspiration from the iconic song by Madness and envisions vibrant communities where everyone feels at home.

Solving the Dutch Housing Crisis, One Home at a Time

Moos is on a mission to address the pressing housing shortage in the Netherlands through social and sustainable means. Their innovative approach involves the creation of high-quality, circular, and modular homes that are not only eco-friendly but also adaptable to the evolving needs of residents.

Concrete’s Contribution to Moos

Since its inception in 2020, Concrete has played a pivotal role in shaping the vision of Moos, contributing to the development of its concept, architecture, and branding. Currently, several projects are underway, with approximately 500 homes slated for construction in the near future.

Moos Euterpe: A Testament to Innovative Design

The completion of Moos Euterpe marks a significant milestone for the initiative. Situated in Maasland, a close-knit community near Rotterdam, this social housing project embodies the ethos of Moos. Designed by Concrete, the complex consists of 30 housing units, catering to families of varying sizes.

Fostering Community and Connection

At the heart of Moos Euterpe lies a communal garden, serving as a hub for social interaction and fostering a sense of belonging among residents. The innovative architecture, characterized by step-back facades and interconnected verandas, encourages residents to engage with their surroundings and forge meaningful connections with their neighbors.

Modular Design for Diverse Living Needs

Moos offers a range of modular housing solutions, catering to individuals and families alike. From studios to four-bedroom houses, each home is designed to accommodate different lifestyles while maintaining high-quality standards. The modular design allows for personalization options, ensuring that every resident can live in a space tailored to their specific needs.

Promoting Sustainability Through Circular Practices

Central to Moos’ ethos is its commitment to sustainability. By employing circular construction methods and utilizing recycled and upcycled materials, Moos aims to minimize waste and reduce environmental impact. Additionally, the modular nature of Moos homes ensures flexibility and longevity, making them suitable for both permanent and temporary housing projects.

A Collaborative Approach to Urban Development

Moos operates within a collaborative partner ecosystem, where different companies contribute their expertise to the initiative. This unique approach maximizes the strengths of each partner and ensures the quality and success of Moos projects.

In conclusion, Moos represents a new era of sustainable and community-focused urban living. With its innovative approach to housing design and commitment to social responsibility, Moos is set to redefine the future of housing in the Netherlands and beyond.
