We are practical idealists. Of course we enjoy dreaming about beauty and a circular world as much as anyone, but what we really like is to work on it: day after day, together with clients, and always with the users and the environment in mind. The resulting designs inspire the way people live, work and learn. Our architecture creates space, strengthens the environment and gives something back to society. We are Kraaijvanger.

Expertise

We want people to be happy, whether they are at work, at home or at school. Our designs make room for this. Circular design and construction and breathing new life into existing buildings require the careful use of resources. This is our way to contribute to vital cities.
