Abscis Architecten is a very driven practice with extensive experience in both new build and renovation projects.
Our extensive experience covers residential, office, school, university buildings, nursing homes, laboratories and retail projects.
This consciously chosen approach to all of our projects allows for a wide ranging architectural diversity. This means that each assignment is considered as a fresh and exciting challenge for both our senior and junior collaborators who serve to reinforce and inspire our team. Within this process, designs are either created through an ongoing dialogue with the client, competition entries, or through an interactive and evolving process of study and design development.
As an outcome, the needs and desires of the client are translated into recognizable and unique projects with focus on innovative design, modern materials and sophisticated detailing. We fit our assignments invariably within a broader spatial and social context in which economic and ecological aspects are considered paramount. Striving for a combination and balance between these elements makes socially responsible and relevant projects possible. The private and public buildings and spaces we design have their own role and importance within the socio-cultural fabric of the built and urban environment.
In all our projects we strive to provide contemporary solutions for contemporary questions concerning urban development. In these projects therefore, we always start from researching the most contemporary issues we care most about within our global design vision: lasting structures, frugal use of space, raw materials and energy, efficient use of available products, research into (and application of) new technologies, quality of public space, care for the architectural heritage, health and safety of the users etc.
For each and every project, these issues are taken into account, added to and researched in view of the specific requests from the customer. They are checked against previous own experience or experience from others both here and abroad. They are the basis for each and every design, drawing or proposal about which we regularly talk about with our customer.
