On 01.01.01 Boris Zeisser and Maartje Lammers founded 24H> ARCHITECTURE in Rotterdam. The office focuses on Nature inspired designs, best summarized in the theme of Art d'eco, referring to the art of ecology as well as the the art Deco period.
The goal is to find the hidden layers of each commission. Next to program and site, these undiscovered layers provide inspiration for each design. By working with various themes guiding the design process, a broad spectrum of non-architectural solutions is found.
Evolution: adaptable structures in time providing multi program use in a single space.
Natrufied: Abstract interpretations of nature petrified into building materials.
Organism: Growing additions transform existing buildings into new compositions.
Art d’eco: Supporting environment as well as beauty makes the art of ecology.
Sensibility: to arouse the senses, a building should age beautifully by using materials with a natural ability to transform during its lifetime.
