ABOUT THE ARCHITECTS

The oeuvre they have realized in the course of twenty years demonstrates the fact that Ralf Coussée, Klaas Goris & Hilde Huyghe do not obstinately seek to achieve radical modernist innovation for its own sake. The architects carefully guard the age-old traditions that are involved in the construction of buildings. The team’s architecture bears witness to an authentic design that is based on an intriguing play of patterns, themes and construction methods, which reveals both the 'thinking and doing' that underlies architecture. The architects seek inspiration in art and poetry. The functioning and scenic power of the landscape are the foundation of their architecture.
