Space&matter is an Amsterdam based office for architecture, urban planning and concept design. After it's foundation in early 2009, the office has developed itself rapidly. Led by its founding partners Sascha Glasl, Tjeerd Haccou and Marthijn Pool, a skilled team of seven international designers, works on a wide range of projects of various scales.
As architecture and planning touch on all social and cultural levels of society, we think our reach and responsibility goes beyond form and function. Our spatial interventions and strategies are therefore consciously designed to perform in a sociocultural context. In this realm we see the opportunity and our ambition, to use architectural thinking and planning to provide significant answers for the concerns of today and tomorrow.
Rather than just being reactive, we like to initiate projects and proactively involve ourselves in matters that we consider as relevant. Setting up joint ventures around our own interests and fascinations has proven to be an effective way to realize our ambitions.
With backgrounds in urban planning, architecture, research, BIM and graphic design, our team has a wide angle view on the world and a strong set of skills that backs up our thinking. Being generalists we share an interest in different fields of expertise and highly value interdisciplinary collaborations. Drawing from these sources, our office has an output that ranges from teaching and writing, to designing concepts, buildings, urban plans and strategies.
