Catja de Haas Architects specialises in housing but looks at architecture on all scales: from practical ideas to abstract concepts and from pieces of furniture to urban plans and community art installations.
A project is always considered in its context: we closely involve the client in the process in order to come to a balanced, original proposal. We consult and discuss ideas as well as make complete proposals for all stages of the building process. If part of a project is outside of our expertise, we collaborate with other practices. We make buildings that are a pleasure to use, have little impact on their environment and can help making existing buildings more sustainable.
The office also runs a not for profit community arts project: the Giant Dolls’ House Project which emphasises the need for a home and community for all. Through the dolls’ house project we have discussed houses and homes with an enormous range of people. The project can be used in a consultation process.
The office is BIM ready.
