Aart is committed to ensuring that he works with clients to provide an architectural vision which interprets their wishes and exceeds their requirements. His experience in creating value for money and efficient design solutions is based on an innovative, confident, and pragmatic approach. This, combined with Aart’s ability to listen, convey design ideas and enthusiasm for collaborating with stakeholders, gives him a great ability to deliver successful facilities and inspiring architecture. This dedication and passion has seen Aart successfully lead the education portfolio of projects within the studio.
Aart realises the importance of having tools to communicate design ideas. He has a strong belief that for the informative process to be successful the design information has to be clear and easy to understand. His approach to designing, within the studio and with clients, involves using 3d modelling (physical and virtual), combined with simple sketches and diagrams. This approach allows stakeholders to make informed decisions about the spatial configurations, balance of spaces, environmental conditions, use of colour, identity of space and other design issues which are normally difficult to grasp just by using 2d information.
Since qualifying as an Architect Aart has gained his experience both in Holland and the UK, and across many sectors, including commercial offices, residential and educational projects and he has worked closely with a number of different clients and design teams to develop their vision and build projects.
