A new dawn, A new day.....

Bekkering Adams architecten becomes:
Studio Adams & Juliette Bekkering architecten.

After 15 years of enjoying working together on many great projects, we will continue as two independent offices.

As Bekkering Adams architects we engaged on a variety of special projects such as School Campus Peer (Belgium); Head office Esprit Benelux in Amstelveen and Schuurman Group, Alkmaar; Urban ensemble ‘Bloemershof’ in Dieren; Firestation in Doetinchem; Installation ‘Form-ContraForm’ for the Biennale in Venice (Italy) and many more.

From January 2020 Monica Adams will operate under the name Studio Adams and Juliette Bekkering will combine her work at Eindhoven University of Technology (Tu/e) with her new office Juliette Bekkering architecten.

The pavilion is situated on the Lloydplein along the river Y in Amsterdam.  It is a freestanding object framed on three sides by several large complexes. It has spacious views towards the harbour on the north side. The building is designed as two interwoven volumes: on the ground floor a space for the catering industry, and on the first floor an office space. The two patios on the first floor and the stairwell diversify the volume and refine the shape. The total complex of dark stained stone with frames of zinc forms a distinct sculpture on the square, with a framed window on the head of the volume guarantying a spectacular view toward the river.
