Renovating buildings is an incredibly rewarding way to contribute to a sustainable environment. The design challenge is often formidable and requires a balancing act: respect for the original structure on the one hand, while on the other hand adding a new layer, making a building suitable for the next thirty years.

 

One must be able to recognize the strength and beauty of the original structure and see its potentials before one can add new elements in a meaningful way.

 

It’s our goal to create a coherent ‘new’ building that both contains its own history and reaches out to the future. Fokkema & Partners Architects have renovated over 150.000 m² in the past decade.
