I think this is great. The process of com­ing inside from out­side is pro­gres­sive.” Jonathan Manser

The exte­ri­or ver­ti­cal wood­en struc­ture com­mu­ni­cates very well with the sur­round­ings.” Nils Johan Mansåker

Overview WAN AWARD shortlist

Scout­ing­land­goed Zeewolde

The two san­i­tary pavil­ions are the first built per­ma­nent struc­tures of the Inter­na­tion­al Scout Cen­tre Zee­wolde. They func­tion as the scout centre’s out­posts and ser­vice those stay­ing at the near­by camp­ing ground.

The project brief­ing as part of the com­pre­hen­sive mas­ter­plan demand­ed two san­i­tary pavil­ions on the Inter­na­tion­al Scout Cen­tre Zee­wolde. The estate is locat­ed on the banks of a lake. The struc­tures need­ed to be self-sup­port­ing, not dom­i­nate their sur­round­ings, be eco-friend­ly and ser­vice both scouts and campers.

On the banks of the nar­row bor­der lake ‘Nul­der­nauw’ and sit­u­at­ed in the broad-leaved for­est ‘Horster­wold’ – the largest of its type in the Nether­lands – lays the des­ig­nat­ed site of the Inter­na­tion­al Scout Cen­tre Zee­wolde. It is here, in the Flevopold­er, where the Dutch Scout­ing wish­es to devel­op an estate for future scout­ing activ­i­ties and events.

The estate will be devel­oped into, what could be best be described as the ulti­mate scout­ing expe­ri­ence. The ambi­tion of Scout­ing how­ev­er, reach­es beyond its own scope: It wants to cre­ate a open place that is invit­ing to every­one who wish­es to enjoy a lush, nat­ur­al environment.
