‘If you build it, they will come’

fabulousworld1.jpg

We stand for personality, honesty and integrity. We believe in the professionalism, efficiency of a small scale company. We believe in architecture with an integral sustainability and a convincing imagination that drives the design. We are fascinated by new technologies, circular economy, the transition to just sustainability and believe that it can be done differently. Now and not later.

We do not ask why, but why not?

We design and realize projects of all sizes: from urban master plans, industrial buildings, offices to residential (apartments, houses, large and small renovations), furniture and even light fittings.

Our work is an endless course of the same, as a broken scenario by David Lynch that seems to make sense. Out of the ordinary. We look and we do.

Think of something to build it.
Nothing more, but nothing less. 

People will come.

Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS

Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS

Professional Office Management

The office can count on professional support that ensures that every project is continuously monitored from start to finish, in terms of content, finance and planning. For this purpose, the agency is equipped with specialized software such as XATRAX ARCHX and the MICROSOFT OFFICE 365 system, has its own SHAREPOINT PLATFORM that makes sharing documents with clients and contractors easier and more accessible. MICROSOFT PROJECT PRO software that enables dynamic planning models is used for the planning of each project. The bureau is also a member of various professional organizations that provide relevant support, such as the NAV, VIBE and WTCB. In short, the office likes to reach out to a digital future and is currently even exploring VIRTUAL REALITY.

In addition to this internal support, the office can count on years of experience and constructive collaborations with various external engineering firms such as Mouton, Util, Lime, Stedec (stability), VK engineering, Boydens, Tech3 (techniques), Daidalos-Peutz (acoustics, building physics) etc.

Their own years of concrete construction expertise in a very large office, in various projects, supplemented by this broad technical and practical support, ensure that every assignment, whatever scale and budget, can be realized in an extremely professional way - within timing and budget.

 

Bach & Numbers

maxresdefault.jpg

Core business model

Every composition by Johann Sebastian Bach can be brought back to a fanatically organized system of numbers, a rational background: pure mathematics.
Dhooge & Meganck strongly believe in this tandem: architecture that is moving and whose figures are right, and this for every budget. Because there is no project without knocking figures. No number, no Bach
