about vakwerk architecten

Vakwerk architecten was established in summer 2017 by Francesco Veenstra, Ellen van der Wal and Paul Ketelaars. They felt the need for rethinking the role of the architect in a changing world and in the context of changing client needs. It became inevitable to start a new office and to bring this into practice. And so, Vakwerk architecten was born! As architects we take a responsible role in every project. This results in strong client engagement throughout the entire design and construction process. We believe the added value we bring to the project is in developing a variety of ideas, scenarios that will help the client to take considerable decisions in all stages of the project. Vakwerk’s signature is enhanced by a focus on process, context, urban scale and integrated sustainable design. Motivation in our designs operates at a human scale, with a sensitive eye for detail, playfulness, innovation and ownership during the design process. Buildings that are designed by Vakwerk work for both clients and end users. Our diverse and international experience continually informs how we work, think and approach architecture. We strive to create well-loved places with an own identity and a high impact. Vakwerkers are teamplayers. Our team consists of 26 people of various nationalities and currently counts more women than men. In order to bring our team closer together we organize Koersdagen every half year. During these days we discuss the course of Vakwerk: together we set new goals, both for the firm as on a personal level. At the moment we are working on a great variety of projects such as hospitals, housing, work place design, schools, a refurbishment of monuments and beer breweries.
