    Coming January Bekkering Adams architects will move into a new office, together with co-tenant GROUP A. After enjoying our current office space in the monumental building 'Diepeveen' with its characteristic tower, we feel it's now time to discover and develop a new environment. We are exited to move to an inspiring new studio, situated within the dynamic and upcoming M4H district - Merwe Vierhavens. 

     

     

    In this innovative area Bekkering Adams architects will join a diverse mix of companies already situated in the area, such as Atelier van Lieshout, Studio Roosegaarde, Marconia and Studio Makkink & Bey. Together with start-up CleanTech companies and "Making" companies including Buurman - de Bende, de Voedseltuin and Madein4Haven we are fully commited to join them in the creation of a pioneer location for innovation and inspiration.

    Since the original ware house needed some serious changes before we could use it as an office, the last half year we have been busy to transforme the space into a working space as well as forming the communal welcome area and meeting space. See also the blog by Lolke Ket (Group A) for a weekly update of the work under construction.
