About Me open living

Can you build faster, with fewer costs and lower risk? Natural gas-free and healthy indoor climate can then be taken along. Take the diversity of personal housing requirements as a starting point in the housing layout, residential installations and bathroom. Is that possible at the same time? Yes, that is only possible at the same time!

Uniformity in construction, housing, and facades necessary for effective investments with management and maintenance. How do you do that as a corporation, private investor or housing developer? OpenWonen in practice provides cheaper, better and more flexible homes than traditional. Read our ebook for the process approach.

My name is Remko Zuidema and I believe that everybody has the right to have and reach their desired DreamHome within their available budget, with a lot more personal quality than they have now and even within a predictable timeframe.

Why do I want to help you?

I want to help you because I vividly recognize your frustration and because I also know that it doesn’t have to be this way. Apart from that, I am a passionate bridge builder. Making connections between people’s needs in both building and living is the main thread in my life. I grew up among the clients of my parents and grandparents; architects, contractors and accountants. Ideas about architecture, building technique and building management were spoon-fed and led to my Architecture major at TU Delft. Subsequently I have been able to fathom the construction industry from the practice for decades.
In the complex reality, technique and design alone have proven to not be enough to personally touch me. What interests me, is that personally touches you and supports you. That led to a clear vision: directly connecting technical content with the needs of the daily users of a building. I want to help you to realize the personally desired quality at home.
I have also sat in the chair of about every party involved in the current building process, from recourses and building products to contractors and advisors. The construction industry still mostly operates opinionated and head-strong, without seriously keeping in mind the end customer – you as inhabitant and building user. Even worse, without really wanting to get to know you! Based on decades of vastly differing experiences, my ideas of how that can be improved have ripened. Or rather: how it has to be improved. I would like to show you how. The time of words has passed, it is now time to DO.
