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 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.
