Serge Schoemaker Architects is an Amsterdam-based multidisciplinary design studio founded in 2008. We work on carefully designed, bespoke buildings, interiors, landscape objects and art installations.

The design approach of Serge Schoemaker Architects is informed by a fascination for the ‘aesthetics of architecture’. Through the process of building physical models, we explore the architectural potential of space, structures and materials. In our work construction, materialization and detailing are inseparable from the architectural concept and sensorial experience. By utilizing space, light and material we aim to give our architecture a basic intrinsic quality.

Through a process-based way of working that is both hands-on and research-driven, we strive for exceptional, custom-made solutions. We seek spatial and structural outcomes that reference their surroundings through form or craftsmanship. Thereby, the architecture can become a natural, sustainable fit for its surroundings and tell the story of a place in a new light. This contextual approach proves to be suitable for both sensitive environments and monumental sites.

The practice works on projects in the public domain and private sector. Projects span conservation work to conversions and new interventions. We advise clients from initial concept – via feasibility studies and design sketches – to final completion. Special attention is given to the realization phase: through in-house project management during the construction process, we can ensure that the design will be executed with the quality that we envisioned.
