Office

Civic focuses on the production of public buildings and spaces. We pursue an architecture that is rooted in time, typological innovation and a strong material usage. Our team-members bring in a broad spectrum of expertise. Unceasingly analysis, testing grounds en fast forward engineering make our designs flexible, time specific and provocative.

As a member of The Cloud Collective, collaboration is in our DNA. We work together with our TCC partners; external experts and with our clients.
