Future proof design
Future proof architecture, ready to evolve
Buildings, cities or landscapes are resilient not only for their strengths, but mainly because of their flexibility and adaptability. Because efficiency alone can make an idea very fragile to change, we design robust concepts. Resilient buildings and neighborhoods, where modification, extensions or individual adjustments are possible without having to start all over again.
We design radical flexibility with ‘Open Building’
We design according to the principles of Open Building: a radical separation of support, facade, installations and infill. We ensure that materials can be easily disassembled when they reach the end of their life cycle. With Open Building, we make buildings optimally flexible so that the infill can be easily adjusted, either now by residents or in the future.
With prefabrication we promote an integrated design process
Increasingly, we are working with prefabricated building components, such as timber construction. The advantages of prefabrication are a shorter construction time, high-quality manufacturing with guarantees, and the fact that building components are increasingly detachable. With prefabrication, we need to think before rather than after, which is why we involve consultants in the design process at an early stage.
