Our team, consisting of Chora Blau – Hannover, Planersocietät – Dortmund and Monadnock, was commisioned to develop the urban masterplan for Wasserstadt in Hannover, by the consortium of Papenburg Baugesellschaft, ECE Group GmbH & Co, Die Wohnkompanie Nord GmbH.

Our winning competition proposal envisages the largest urban extension in Hanover, on the former industrial site of the Continental factory. Our team is currently working on the urban planning of this new future-proof district: 183.000 M2 providing for a full experience of water, with more green and less cars along with a wide variety of urban, collective spaces and housing types.


As part of the new city quarter Waalsprong, an expansion of Nijmegen, Monadnock has been commissioned to design a series of buildings. The first in line is an apartment building marking the entrance to the new centre of the district on a key corner.


The selection group, consisting of Trianon and Lernacken Fastigheter AB together with the Stadsbyggnadkontoret Malmö city has appointed our team consisting of Förstbergling (SE) + Monadnock (NL) + Tredjenatur (DK) for the parallel commission.

The organiser’s objective is to develop a housing project at Övägen in Limhamn, Malmö, with a cluster of public uses such as restaurants and cafés, fronting onto the future Fendertorget square. The winning proposal will form the basis for the future zoning plan and planning application.

W.I.P. Bredius Location Amsterdam

Monadnock works on a triangular housing block in the historical Spaarndammer neighborhood,
Amsterdam. A block containing 102 housing units, combined with a cafe and a neighborhood
association. A challenging commission in a challenging setting: creating a timber construction
draped in an ornate brick dress.

W.I.P. Waalsprong Nijmegen

Monadnock works on several buildings in the Waalsprong in Nijmegen: a diversity of typologies
such as tower-apartments, lush single family houses, shopping, a twin house and generous
care-homes. All in an urban plan by De Zwarte Hond and De Urbanisten for AM and VanWonen.

W.I.P. Leidsche Rijn Utrecht – Block G11 – G12

valuable extension to the city of Utrecht, in total 94 units for Wonam Development and Mitros
housing corporation. This development forms an ensemble of two perimeter blocks, subdivided
in 6 buildings, teaming up with colleagues from Bureau van Eig and Geurst & Schulze.
