COMMUNICATING COMMUNITIES

OFFICE

“WE ARE VMX ARCHITECTS, WE DESIGN AND BUILD ATTRACTIVE SPACES FOR PEOPLE. AS SOCIALLY COMMITTED ARCHITECTS, OUR MISSION IS TO IMPROVE THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT AND THUS THE QUALITY OF LIFE. 

IN ALL OUR PROJECTS WE FOCUS ON THE USERS AND FACILITATE INTERACTION BETWEEN PEOPLE, THEREBY HELPING TO CREATE HEALTHY COMMUNITIES. OUR BUILDINGS THEREFORE COMMUNICATE CLEARLY WITH THEIR USERS AND WITH THE SURROUNDINGS.

TOGETHER WITH OUR CLIENTS AND ADVISORS, WE REALISE ARCHITECTURE THAT GIVES MEANING, DEFINES IDENTITY, INSTILS PRIDE AND ENHANCES SOLIDARITY. WHILE THE STRIKING FEATURES OF OUR DESIGNS ARE USUALLY EASY TO RECOGNISE, THEIR AESTHETIC QUALITIES OFTEN REVEAL THEMSELVES ONLY IN THE SECOND INSTANCE. 

VMX ARCHITECTS IS AN INTERNATIONALLY OPERATING, PRIZE-WINNING OFFICE FOUNDED IN 1995 IN AMSTERDAM. OUR WORK RANGES FROM THE TYPICALLY DUTCH BIKE SHED TO A VIP TERMINAL AT SCHIPHOL AIRPORT, AND FROM SOCIAL HOUSING TO UNIVERSITY BUILDINGS IN SHANGHAI. OUR SOCIAL COMMITMENT IS REFLECTED IN OUR FREQUENT LECTURES, OUR CONTRIBUTION TO EDUCATION, OUR PARTICIPATION ON ADVISORY COUNCILS AND JURIES, AND OUR SUMMER SCHOOL.”
