No Man is an Island

OTO developed a strategy for Hoorn80 together with Buro Moon, Metabolic and C-A-S.

This strategy called “No man is an Island” offers a new perspective for a sustainable industrial area using the energytransition as an incentive. A new collective network is proposed to exchange energy and resources between different companies, which at the same improves the overall spatial quality of this area.

OTO presents Start Up Farm

Last week OTO presented, together with Buro Moon and Ravenkop, our project Start-up Farm at the final meeting of Brood & Spelen in Den Bosch. This project shows the potention of new agricultural entrepeneurship for rural areas based on circular principles, inspired bij the urban start-up examples. As a team we believe that diverse entrepreneurship and the space to experiment in small-scale agricultural and horticultural businesses can be the innovation engine for this sector. Start-up Farm Decohof is the first example based on these principles, providing space and a circular system for different kind of activities within a green-blue framework.
