We are committed to researching and believe it is a fundamental part of architecture. Analysing space and identifying emerging problems is to properly understand the function of the building, of how it should perform. We have completed a wide array of projects over the years. In all of these projects, an initial analysis of the context formed the starting point. It contributes to defining the potential challenges, forming sustainable and coherent principles for the design itself.

Furthermore, architectural thinking and research can be applied to domains beyond, such as the arts, and vice versa, enriching our work. Culture influences the design process to a great extent. Dam & Partners Architecten have an own art collection, which forms a visible part of our working environment and makes an inspiring contribution to our day-to-day design activities.
