Nature inclusive building handbook

Sustainable area development

Paradoxical as it may sound, the realization of new construction offers many opportunities for increasing Amsterdam's biodiversity. For example, new buildings can be fitted with nesting stones for birds; a relatively cheap installation that is suitable for sparrows, swifts and starlings. Provisions can also be made for bats.

Handbook with 20 ideas

Nature-inclusive building and design ensures a healthy, future-proof living environment for humans and animals. There are options for every building or area. For example on the ground (wadi or facade garden), on the roof and even in the wall. The 20 most useful ideas are explained in the Handbook Nature inclusive building and design in 20 ideas.
