cc-studio architecture & engineering

Nieuwpoortkade 2A, 1055 RX Amsterdam, Paesi Bassi

Architecture is made for people by people and built within our natural environment. We care about all 3. Our niche is in projects in which we can inventively combine technical and sustainable innovations with strong architectural qualities like remarkable spatial experience and efficient functionality. We like to work for open minded clients and operate well with in the constraints of tight budgets. Good constraints trigger more “out of the box thinking”, more creativity, fun and inventiveness during the whole process. An open mind is important to be able tot see and make use of opportunities along the road. As a small studio we believe strongly in an intelligent and interactive creative collaboration with all involved in the process of the design and it’s realization: clients, advisors, (sub-)contractors and industries. Our office is situated in a multidisciplinary creative industrial environment (www.davincicreatieveruimtes.nl).
