NS Stations Headquarters
The current floor plan consists of typical cellular offices along the facade and an oversized hallway in the center. The basic idea is to introduce a series of perpendicular walls that will organize the space. By ‘inflating’ these partitioning walls they can become storage spaces. The shelves can absorb most of the clutter that normally spreads trough the office, such as wardrobes, bookshelves, flip boards, archive, bulletin boards. And sometimes even the stairs. The Thick Walls™ will clean up the space.

Villa 4.0
The principle guiding the architects for this new intervention was to create a house that is sustainable and to reinstate the lost relationship between the house and the landscape. The first step was to preserve as much as possible of the existing house, limiting both the amount of waste and of new materials.

House N, Noordwijk

Dutch Seaside Building

House N
Built in 1938, this Dutch seaside villa was originally the holiday home of a concrete factory owner. Battered and blustered by the salty sea weather over the decades, the house was in need of renovation. Besides roof replacement and basement repairs, the bedrooms, bathrooms and windows were outdated and some spaces had grown too small for the clients’ requirements. The additions by the architects bring new distinctive features to the house, while respecting its original character.
