Bringing Dutch knowledge to Poland. That’s my work. For example with my design of a multifunctional floating object on the Odra river in Wrocław. Amsterdom is your Dutch architect and architectural knowledge center in Poland.
Where as many countries in Europe are developed, Poland is still developing. Since the 50′s, all cities in Poland visually changed a lot to fulfil the urgent housing needs for people and businesses. Then the only solution was to quickly build without designing. Concepts and analyses were not on the priority list, but now more and more people are aware of the undesigned situation in Poland and want change. People get involved in urban planning and architecture. People realize that designs are needed. I work with that belief.
Poland makes a great, challenging country to build. Every culture has its own habits and the local built environment facilitates our lives. We have influence on our surroundings and the surroundings have influence on us. People, regulations and the built environment in Poland are unique. All these aspects need to work together, so buildings in Poland should be unique just like the country is.
In my work I focus on the client, context, and cooperation to achieve a beautiful result in an efficient design- and building process, asking ourselves: who, where and what?
Who? A program of requirements defines the needs. We analyze the current situation and future perspectives to create a functional and esthetic object.
Where? Every design process starts with analyzing the building location. Its characteristics are described and advantages and improvements investigated.
What? The architect, engineers and consultants work together to advise our client in achieving the best suited solution. At the end we all can be proud of a new building.
Don’t look any further. Destination reached! Amsterdom.

Punkt, płaszczyzna i linia są podstawowymi elementami do stworzenia objektów przestrzennych i słusznej kompozycji architektonicznej. Kompozycja i architektura nowego kościoła w dzielnicy “Polanka” będzie stworzona na podstawie tych elementów. Wybór punktu, płaszczyzny i linii do projektowania wynikało z wyglądu otoczenia działki projektowej. Z tymi elementami można stworzyć słuszną i piękną kompozycję.
