New project: coffee shop Almere
A new design for a coffee shop in the city centre of Almere, which extends the small shop with a simple and transparent volume, showing the products in two iconic circular displays. The design builds upon earlier interiors where we focus on creating transparency and welcoming atmosphere.
Update: Ymere interior
The interior design for the regional Ymere office is done. The main elements in this calm and modest interior design are three functional boxes containing services, meeting space and workspaces for concentration. More soon.
The building permit for our design for the extension of the listed monument Ketelhuis in Ede has been granted. The existing building will be renovated and two transparent extensions with a timber construction will house a bar and restaurant.

On site: Ruijterkade
The walls of the spectacular winding steel stairs in our Ruijterkade project have been cladded with brass panelling. Still waiting for the marble steps being cut in Italy at the moment.
We recently finished the VO-phase of the design for ‘Fitz’, the circular residential building in Amsterdam. In an intense collaboration with the team, the ambitions of the tender design were subjected to a rigorous reality-check. We are proud that the ambitions still stand strong and we will start the DO-phase shortly. More information here.
