About 

The dynamic architectural office was founded in 1979 by Christine Conix. Today Conix Architects consists of a team of creative and motivated individuals, located in offices in Antwerp, Brussels and Poland. The projects we take on are both residential such as private homes, housing complexes, apartments as well as schools, cultural projects, commercial buildings, offices, banks, industrial projects, interior design, property development and renovations. It is a conscious decision not to specialize in a specific sector: every project offers its own challenges. The nature, extent or budget is not a determining factor when deciding to take on a project, but rather whether it would be possible to initiate a dialog with the client who is open to contemporary and stylish architecture. The needs, wishes and expectations of the client are translated into buildings with a unique appearance drawn from contemporary concepts, displaying the highest quality of work. Conix Architects does not strive to design buildings with a unique style per definition but try first of all to meet the needs of the client. These ideas reflect the uniqueness of their work as it strives to achieve its guiding principles of spaciousness, communication between the indoors and outdoors, refinement and perfection. The type of architecture we strive to create holds a meaningful answer for a specific position in space and time, always characterized by its open spatial concept and its sharpness. The outward appearance of the design has to reflect its content. At Conix Architects we use this duality to create lucidity for the building, which is also expressed in its relation with external and interior spaces. Functionality is essential; experiencing the internal and external spaces should evoke surprise, questions and tranquility. Our primary task at Conix Architects is building outstanding concepts, irrespective of their size or difficulty, to the best of our abilities. The result is always plural and never remote from its specific expectations, needs and objectives. Guided by emotions, inspired by beauty and creativity, supported by experience, sustainability and context, Conix Architects is continuously in motion.
