At de Ceuvel we host private tours for interested individuals, schools, companies and other parties. Whether you’re an architect, technical engineer, a high school student, or just a generally interested person: there will be someone at de Ceuvel that can explain our story in a way that’s relevant to your background.
The tour covers the story of De Ceuvel. You will learn about sustainability & the circular economy, urban renewal strategies, architecture and communal experimentation and bottom-up development.
Our virtual tour of de Ceuvel was developed during the corona lockdown. Instead of physically visiting our site, we can show you around virtually! The online tour, or webinar, is conducted in a Zoom meeting. Our guide welcomes you in this virtual environment at a time and date of your convenience. Using photos, exclusive videos and illustrations unavailable elsewhere, we tell the story of our unique site. There will be ample time for questions and conversations with the live tour guide.
The virtual tour can be given to a large group of Zoom participants, or as a remote speaker during a physical event. It is suitable in various contexts: as a guest lecture for schools or universities, as a program item of an (online) sustainability conference, as part of a more extensive (company) training course, or in whatever setting you've designed.
The International Residential Living Lab (IRLL) stimulates and facilitates the founding of residential living labs. Residents test new housing solutions, components, materials, energy concepts and smart devices in collaboration with stakeholders to develop future-proof housing solutions. The IRLL has developed specialized methods and tools to co-create successful and continuous residential living labs. They cover the city of Amsterdam as other interesting sites in The Netherlands and abroad.
The tours offered differ in terms of length and content consisting of visits to sites, presentations, knowledge transfer, discussions with stakeholders and in-depth project developments. The prototype of the International Residential Living Lab has been placed on the campus of TUDelft and can be visited in combination with a special program on circular and smart urban housing. Different Residential Living Labs are under development with real life users, co-creation and data collection.
For more information or special programs get in touch with the IRLL.

Cradle to cradle working environment
Park 20|20 is the first full service Cradle to Cradle working environment in The Netherlands. In Park 20|20 a unique level of sustainability is created together with a human centered design approach to realise the cleanest, most inspiring and productive working environment to date.
Cradle to Cradle® is an innovation platform developed by architect William McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart for designing beneficial economic, social and environmental features into products, processes and systems. Rather than seeking to minimize the harm we inflict, Cradle to Cradle reframes design as a positive, regenerative force—one that creates footprints to delight in, not lament.
