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.

For Leerpark Dordrecht, an ambitious development where learning and working is combined, a range of different feasibility studies have been made. By clustering schools and commercial activities, interaction is stimulated between students, businesses and residents, making the whole greater than the sum of its parts. The feasibility studies have been made for location at the head of the Leerpark Dordrecht, thus marking the entrance to the area. The location exists of three plots, allowing different and individual appearances, and together forming an urban ensemble. 

The buildings combine office space and business areas. The business premises are on the ground floor and have access to the street. At level above roof gardens are situated. The entrance of the upper offices is on the first floor, which gives them maximum visibility from the nearby highway, and allowing them to look onto attractive roof gardens.

The buildings have flexible floor plans, allowing them to split up into smaller units and exchange with the learning school program as much possible. Within the assignment an optimum between program, flexibility, and identity is achieved, in order to stimulate the desired synergy. Within the feasibility studies different combinations of the program have been examined.


We are an internationally operating, dynamic and versatile architectural office, looking and working with an open mind towards our future society. Founded by Juliette Bekkering and Monica Adams, we share a fascination for enhancing the urban environment. With an enthusiastic team of architects and designers we work on innovative and sustainable projects with a strong identity, defined by expressive architecture with a tactile expression of material and detail.
