We won the Henry van de Velde Award for best Digital Product!

The Henry van de Velde Awards are the biggest design awards in Belgium. So we were thrilled to hear that we won their Digital Product Award with Woningpas and are in the running for a Public Gold Award too! Vote here.

Woningpas is a digital platform that contains all relevant information on every home in Flanders. Owners can find and manage useful data about inspections, certificates and, in a later stage, permits as well.

The project was launched by the Flemish government that chose LeapFORWARD as their design and innovation partner from the initial concept to the ultimate development of Woningpas.

Winning this award is an honour and means a lot to us.


Buying, selling or managing a house or apartment always comes with a lot of paperwork. Up until now, all information was decentralised across a number of Flemish organizations. An all-in-one digital platform proved to be the best solution to make all relevant information centrally available for citizens.

A few of the challenges for this project were merging the many visions while creating Woningpas, making the platform accessible to civilians, and encouraging an ecological, longterm mindset.


Do you believe in Woningpas and think we deserve a vote? Here you can help us win the Public Golden Award.

Next to the Digital Product Award, our friends at Knight Moves also won a Collaborative Award!
