It’s all about the context
In all our projects – from private commissions to complex metropolitan transformations – our work stems from our interest in the people and the world around us. Our designs are based on the context. When designing a building, we always consider the role of the surroundings for the building and the building’s role in the surroundings. Our object is to create added social value, enhance the quality of life and refine the urban fabric.
Attention to social interaction
Public spaces are where strangers meet and this generates social interaction. This is why we devote a great deal of attention to the design and programming of the ground level and the plinth of the buildings. The plinth of a building influences the interactions at street level and therefore also urban life and society as a whole.
Building for today, tomorrow and forever
The spaces that we create do more than merely satisfy the schedule of requirements stipulated. We create structures that organise and connect and, at the same time, leave scope for the future, for new programmes and ideas. We do this on both an urban planning level as well as at the building level. In this way all our designs are future proof.
Attention to beauty, detail and quality
Form and choice of materials go hand in hand at De Zwarte Hond. The combined attention for spatiality, details and high-quality workmanship make our designs exceptional, elegant and timeless. We select materials that are not only beautiful today but will increase in beauty over the years. Our designs demonstrate how different scales converge: materials and details blend harmoniously with the building, the buildings blend seamlessly into the surroundings and all De Zwarte Hond’s interventions add quality. We believe in work of such high quality that its beauty will only increase.
