If your office is everywhere, where is your company?

This question was the starting point for our newly developed spacegrazing concept.

We believe that fluid workspaces are the future! Sitting next to your colleague to exchange

paper documents in an office block is obvious superfluous, though
exchanging the company’s knowledge and values are indifferently the rock pillar of any company.

The spacegrazing concept is about connecting the best of both worlds
with the freedom of working everywhere while keeping the company’s fundamentals alive .

Check out the spacegrazers website to find out more….

Spacegrazers is a collaboration between Plan-H project management, Toplab Architects
and a joined team of workspace specialists.


We are currently building a tiny villa in close proximity of the natural reserves of the Beemster just above Amsterdam.

By mixing high tech with low tech we are able to build with a minimal footprint literally and also environmentally.

We recently designed a small extension and new interior for a monument in the center of Amsterdam.

The design refers with a contextual horizontal line play to the historic clock façade designed by Adam Claasz Esso in 1698.

A block shaped extension and choice of material enhanced the contrast between the 21st and 17th century architectural styles.

For a new client we designed a special carpet layout based on small parametric code we have written.

Because the client is a fintech company we used the new  ‘Interface’ ‘visual code’ series which mimics hard drive writing patterns and computer motherboards layouts in their new carpet tiles.

Fixplan bouwt deze zomer de door ons ontworpen nieuwe entree voor de Farelschool in Katwijk. Begin van het nieuwe schooljaar zullen alle leerlingen door een grote ‘F’ hun school binnen lopen/rennen…

De oude entree was zo onopvallend dat we hebben gekozen een groot gebaar te maken op 2 vierkante meter en de eerste letter van de naamgever van de school uit te vergroten. Daarnaast was het van belang een transparante toevoeging te doen omdat de wens was de muurschildering te behouden. ‘The Big F’ is weliswaar een klein project, maar wel een project met een grote Fun factor. see more…
