Designing is first and foremost the creation of environments in which people can live, work or stay comfortably. Making these environments sustainable and innovative, with a focus on quality and minimizing environmental impact, is a natural part of our design process. By working closely with sustainability experts, we keep our technical and substantive knowledge of sustainable and circular applications up to date. Together with all parties involved, this leads to sustainable and integrated design and construction processes. This is reflected in our projects. Offices Central Park Utrecht, with the BREEAM Excellent certificate, will be provided with a park at a height of 45 meters that represents a special ecosystem with the use of maximum greenery. And the Ferro Innovation Factory in M4H Rotterdam, is being renovated in a circular way, with the new facade being made entirely of sustainable wood.
Our approach is one of optimism and pragmatism, combined with a willingness to investigate; in every design phase. Central to this is the social process: architecture requires engagement, both inside and outside the office. This social engagement demands and gives energy and acts as a motor. From this social commitment we are very broadly oriented: the public cause is close to our hearts and forms a stimulus for our thinking and our method of working. In recent years our field of work has shifted from projects from the old economy to more open challenges based on a dynamic form of commissioning. This has resulted in a diverse and complex field of work and demands an open attitude from all stakeholders.
In short, GROUP A is a studio that continuously broadens its horizons.
