The social ecological residence project Groene Mient consist of 33 (private) sustainable  residences on a 7600 m2 piece of land in the Vruchtenbuurt district in The Hague. Guidelines for the mutual residence project were the communal social and ecological values  of Vereniging Groene Mient. The residence project was shaped in accordance with a mutual  architectural design although the inside of each residence is different from the others due to the  wishes of the individual households. The residences surround a mutual  ecological garden that also includes a communal building which serves as  meeting place.

Self-sufficiency regarding energy, use of non-fossil fuels, innovative technology,  natural and sustainable materials, reuse of materials and water as well as accessible and  flexible residences form an important part of the residence project construction.
