Design + Architecture

The place for all your design needs. From initial idea to end result. We focus on identifying and understanding the goals and wishes of you, the client, and translating them to a creative, functional and sustainable solution with the highest quality.

Always ready to challenge the status quo 

We live and breathe design. We see every project as an opportunity to create a space that’s liveable for both the people who use it and those who own it. From interior to exterior, we distinguish ourselves by offering smart and innovative design solutions in the field of Interior Design, Work & Office Concepts, as well as Architectural Designs for both new and renovations projects for office, residential, retail, and logistic buildings. 

Bold, bright, eccentric, fresh, modern

Working with us means partnering up with a highly skilled, experienced and talented team. Each of us is a specialist in his or her area of expertise. In working closely together, we are able to combine a wide variety of disciplines. No matter the scope of the project, the size of the budget or the job to be done, clients can rely on us throughout the whole process. Right from the start our team will provide advice and guidance to ensure the design process is as smooth and efficient as possible.

The way we work

We like to keep things crystal clear and our way of working reflects this. Each project is divided into three phases: concept, design and execution. During these phases our architects work closely together with colleagues from different skill lines, so we can share our expertise and vision and provide an integrated process, every step of the way.

Every project kicks off with Concept & Strategy. In this phase we build a business case, assess the clients wishes and provide answers to questions like: Is renovation the best option or should we go for relocation? What option will cause the least disturbance on the clients day to day operations? What effect does this have on timings and budget? Based on the outcome of these questions we present a plan that shares our vision, approach and practical points.

We follow up by developing a program of wishes and requirements, this forms the base for the entire project. It specifies the desired facilities, the necessary square meters and the technical provisions. At the same time we organize an Architects Café to determine our client’s DNA and to pinpoint essential themes for the design, for example the look and feel of the office, the desired atmosphere and expression.

Once this is done we start working on our design. During this phase we focus on how we can best incorporate our clients DNA into our design. Together with the client we decide on the lay-out, use of colours and materials. The further we progress, the more details are added, including cost specifications and timings. 

Services

BWe design Interiors for Offices, Lobbies, Hotels, Industrial buildings and even Domestic interiors are part of our service offering. Most of the time we are confronted with existing buildings or spaces, but every now and then we get involved in a new build process. Regardless of the project, our mantra when it comes to our Interior Design service, remains the same. For us it’s all about looking ahead. What will living and working look like in the future? What will our users and clients need? Our answer to these questions is creating a unique design that combines beautiful aesthetics with smart and innovative functionality. With every design we use our knowledge and skills to improve the building design to suit the interior use even better. Always striving for the best quality achievable. So, each design is unique as we believe that each should reflect our client’s DNA and company culture.

Besides aesthetically pleasing designs, to us, functionality is just as important. So, it might come as no surprise that we spend a lot of time on developing and contributing to both a work and life environment that actually works. Job satisfaction and work happiness depends on multiple factors. One of the key influences is the work place itself. We understand that the modern workplace demands facilities to share knowledge and enable the residents to fully focus or relax. That’s why each of our Work & Office Concepts consists of three pillars: bricks, bytes and behaviour. With bricks we concentrate on finding the optimal use of the available space. Bytes is all about maximising the functional use and lifespan of the work place through the use of the latest technology and IT facilities. Last but not least, we also take behaviour into account. What does the client journey look like on any given day? What happens between 07:00 and 19:00 and how can we enhance this journey? With these three pillars we provide Work & Office concepts that both users and clients benefit from..

Each and every one of our projects and our clients is unique. That’s why we always start a design with a clean sheet of paper. First we listen, after all, each design starts with the client. What are the client’s wishes and ideas? We translate these into sketches, references, spaces and materials. The client is our partner in this process, a crucial part of the design process. That’s why, throughout the process, we keep our clients up to date, to ensure we deliver what’s expected and most of the time even more.

In our architectural work we have experience in designing new buildings or additions, however, nowadays a lot of our practice involves renovations, transformations and revitalisations. For us this practice is all about creating and utilising opportunities. Opportunities for our client, users and the environment. We aim to give new life to an object and its facilities which has decreased in value over time, without losing or alienating the aspects that made the object unique in the first place. As we become more aware of the value of existing structures and the impact new builds have on the environment, we always challenge our clients on the level of new build versus renovation or transformation. Subjects like recycling and circularity have become an intrinsic part of our practice and we are now looking at existing buildings as mines to supply reclaimed building materials.

Service offering

Our practice exists of a wide offering of services. We are very well equipped to design office-, residential-, retail-, leisure- and logistic buildings or combinations of these. Although our practice originates in the office industry, over time, we’ve gathered a lot of knowledge and experience in other fields as well. Especially logistics has been booming over the last several years and since the retail market has been struggling the last few years we’ve been very active in the transformation of retail spaces to domestic use.
