Krill-o.r.c.a. has designed a pink and grey work-learning space with white linings in fashion hub De Wasserij for fashion students of Zadkine. Named after the sculptor who made “the Destroyed City”, monument to the Rotterdam destruction in World War II, Zadkine is a large vocational school dedicated to developing craftsmanship among students in Rotterdam. While designing the interior, Krill-o.r.c.a. therefore designed the accompanying furniture in a way that would enable the engagement of local craftsmen. With their help, the project was realized from first sketch to completion within three months.
For a private client, Krill is developing a new house-in-a shed, providing a dwelling as well as storage and workshop spaces.
Krill is currrently developing three Indonesian ecodistricts for AFD in collaboration with BERIM, TSPA, ITDP, Vriens & Partners, in Semarang, Yogyakarta, en Wonosobo.
A work in progress project for a vocational school that can radically change the way learning environments are developed. To make vocational education better match the developments of the markets and changing students, new concepts are necessary. Made possible by the Creative Industries Fund
Krill and SHAU –architecture firms based respectively in The Netherlands and Indonesia – were appointed to redesign the whole consular section of the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia. The project is in more than one way a marriage of Dutch-Indonesian building and combines the brute, urban elements of a Dutch building from the sixties with a contemporary, light ambiance and references to Indonesian crafts and spatiality.
For Pape Bird Observation Tower competition, Krill proposed a promenade instead of a tower. The concept of a slowly ascending bridge, offering a view to the landscape while keeping the impact on the ground to a minimum, has the potential to become an iconic landmark in its own right.

A sustainable, livable residential building with the privacyscript of a neighborhood. The Goudse Hoofd is one among a series of new apartment building types Krill is developing, facilitating social interaction between neighbors in a natural way.
Two old apartments are combined into one, sustainable low-energy town house. To reduce the costs for the clients, Krill elaborated the interior in a way that enabled them to self build. Photo’s Frank Hanswijk
