derksen|windt architecten is a young, refreshing and ambitious architecture studio with its own vision, founded in 2008 by architects Jeroen Derksen and David Windt. 'We started our office because we want an distinctive vision within architecture to be translate into projects.
For every assignment we get to design we look for a clear and ideal starting point, a question that needs to be answered for that specific assignment. We do research and design studies in order to get as close to the perfect solution as possible.
We aim for architecture which provides the optimal answer to that what the clients and users desire and are going to experience.
A beautiful, often original and strong, sharply detailled design.'

We have great interest in the possibilities of what materials can do with the design and the image. More on this subject on research part (click here)
