The JONAS residential building received the jury prize in two categories at the BREEAM Awards 2020 gala in London. The IJburgs new-build project from client Amvest was awarded best in the category "Homes-Design Stage Award" and "Regional Award-Western Europe".

The integral concept was designed by Orange architects, engineering firm ABT and Felixx Landscape Architects. Paul Kierkels from Orange Architects and Nick Vlaun from ABT received the prizes together.

The jury members were unanimous in their enthusiasm for Jonas and called it one of the most striking entries. “In addition to the series of sustainability measures, the environment and local residents have clearly been at the center of the Jonas design process. This has led to sustainable and comfortable homes. An approach that other housing projects can learn from, "according to the jury report.
