Encouraging encounters

People meet in architecture. Public buildings play an important role in strengthening social cohesion: they bring people together, create space for shared experiences and serve as a catalyst for the exploration and development of knowledge and culture. As an antidote to our individualized digital age, we provide society with such spaces encouraging encounters and interaction.

Contrast and friction

Bringing people together also means embracing differences. Contrast and friction within our buildings underline our intention to create social interaction between users. We create vibrant spaces, designed with their social impact and exemplary sustainable function in mind. We like to think of buildings as ecosystems: open frameworks enabling their users to take ownership and bring them to life while doing so.

Spaces and places to meet

Valuable public buildings are designed to accommodate diversity and change. They must be sustainable in durability and flexible in use. We design buildings that have character and go beyond what we already know. Buildings to explore the unexpected, dismantle barriers and seize each opportunity to foster communities.

NEXT connects

To take the next step. That’s the aim of NEXT architects. We believe that connecting people and places is vital to meet the environmental and social challenges we face. As humans, we long for connection in everything we do. And NEXT architects accommodates this ambition with each project.
