The city is my motivator and inspiration. The city is in constant transformation, the Amsterdam I grew up in was a different city in every way than it is today. I think architects should play a leading role in this transformation. How do we shape these new forces into spatial opportunities? As an international architect, I like to be in the center where architecture, urbanism, landscape and interior come together and develop new ideas,
concepts and typologies that are unique in time and place. Context is everything. OZ is based in Amsterdam and has been active for over 30 years in complex, mixed use urban architecture and redevelopment projects. OZ adds value with integrated design solutions and strategic concepts. We create unexpected new opportunities. That is why OZ bridges the gap between unique locations, real estate logic and user-oriented design in high-quality architecture.
