One more time with feeling
Atelier Tomas Dirrix is an architecture practice with a collective desire to build spaces that are attentive to the environment.
The practice is founded in 2017 after winning the Meesterproef competition for emerging Belgian and Dutch architects, organised by the Vlaams Bouwmeester. In respectively 2018 and 2019 Atelier Tomas Dirrix won the Unfair Architect Award and received the ARC19 Young Architect Award.
We start each project by looking to what is already there. By taking into account and enabling different kinds of sensitivities, conditions and initiatives we aim to find new perspectives and reimagine what is possible.
Building is a collective effort. With a growing team as our base we actively explore possibilities for collaboration, methods of realisation and forms of application. We like to work together with specialists. Through a thoughtful integration of expertise from partner offices in each phase of the project we can establish new principles, relationships and processes as a basis for realising a regenerative architecture.
