We work with a small team in which everybody carries responsibility and decision power in his own field of expertise. This work method guarantees our clients a personal treatment of the project.
team pauldevroom + sputnik started as a collaboration between two offices: Paul de Vroom Architecten and Sputnik Architecten and is currently working on international projects that vary from (social) housing projects to offices and other commercial buildings.
Paul de Vroom Architecten was founded in 2013. With this office, de Vroom has embarked on a new and challenging course, after a career of 30 years as founder-partner of DKV Architecten. With DKV, Paul de Vroom realized a series of projects in the field of housing, urban planning, utility constructions and public programs that were received with excellent reviews nationally and abroad.
Sputnik Architecten is a Dutch office. There is no Russian background or affiliation. The name was chosen when the office was founded in 2000, referring to the first satellite that was put into orbit in 1957. A sky-reaching idea, executed with elegant simplicity. The office mirrors its design method on that. It symbolizes innovation and a optimistic view on the future.
Together we form a solid base for design and technical elaboration: We share our preference for typological thinking, for clear, unexpected designs and for refined architectural details. Combined with the compatible talents and experiences of the team this immediately evokes synergy.
We create high quality design based on social commitment and craftmanship. We aim to realize buildings that fullfil the needs of its users, sit right in their context and are in line with the vision of the client.
