Ger­ard Voordes, entre­pre­neur and owner of Muta Sport, is an enlight­ened employer; a utopian like those of the 19th cen­tury. He doesn’t only want to have a healthy profit-​making busi­ness, he also wants his fac­tory in Pak­istan to pro­vide bet­ter hous­ing for his employees.

What’s more, he wants to open a fac­tory for bio­com­pos­ite com­po­nents in Pak­istan. And of course he would like to con­struct homes for his peo­ple using this mate­r­ial. Tak­ing this in to account FARO has pro­duced a design that does jus­tice to the wishes of the peo­ple in Pak­istan, can be pre­fab­ri­cated eas­ily in Pak­istan and forms a pro­to­type for this way of working.

A first pro­to­type will be built on Texel to inves­ti­gate what needs to be done in terms of fin­ish and improve­ment. Texel has made a loca­tion avail­able. The island sees this as a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­nity to give form to their sus­tain­able ambi­tion to be an energy-​neutral island.
