We should adopt a total-place agenda to incorporate urban, infrastructural, and societal programming into an architecture which is innovative, challenging and site-specific.
Bilsen Architectuur is a Dutch architectural design office. We consider ourselves to be part of a larger renowned Dutch tradition in Public Building and Infrastructural Design.
We have a humanistic approach to design, emphasizing the human scale and well being above any technical solution. Besides that inspiration is drawn from many current societal developments like green building, durable design, co-creating and many technical driven innovations for construction, energy and climate.
We love to integrate all these into a flowing and functional design.
We translate the clients brief and the local site conditions into an attractive, outspoken and original design. A design with identity yet also fitting in the context. A building to be most advance yet acceptable (MAYA), to quote Raymond Loewy.
Our expertise is in public and spatial projects where architecture, urban design and infrastructure blend. We perform specialist architectural design of railway stations, metro, park & ride facilities and bridges. An independent advising role is taken in projects.
We manage the design process with an emphasis on content and quality, and guard the concept along the various project phases, from preliminary design through to execution on site.
