Take action

  • Take a look at other realised projects with a circular ambition

  • Always consider the applied circular design strategies in their context. Circular design is context-specific.

  • Translate the references to your design to show what ‘circularity gain’ it provides: residual value after use; lower environmental impact; or less use of materials.


Building projects that have a high circular ambition and a high potential to be used in a circular way in the future (adaptable, reusable, etc.) can be a major inspiration. Always be aware that the applied circular strategies are linked to the building and its context. Before applying them to your building project, question how it will benefit a circular economy in this context.
