Mission and vision

RDVA is an architecture office of young architects, based in the centre of Antwerp.
We are active in the field of architecture, urban planning and interior design. We take care of the design from the first sketches until the finest details.

'Looking with an open mind, placing problems and solutions in a bigger context, so that we can offer out client new opportunities.'

Collaboration with JDWA

2DVW Architecten bvba is a design office, founded by Johan De Wachter en Rik De Vooght. 2DVW embodies the collaboration of the Rotterdam based office of Johan De Wachter Architects (JDWA.NL) & Rik De Vooght Architects (RDVA.BE) from Antwerp. For more information & current projects please vist 2DVW.EU.

The design research is currently focusing on innovative typologies for living, care and culture, including logistics, construction and commercial implications. The use of non-standard typologies (both at building level and public space) often leads to a customized solution.

Our interest also goes to niche projects that are a conceptual challenge for the design team through the location, the programmatic questionnaire or the technical preconditions. Various projects include a combination of renovation, intensive reuse and smart expansion.

Through challenging concepts, the field of tension between dream and deed is constantly explored through architectural and urban design. Concept, context and technique are solid ingredients in the design process. The office works from Antwerp and Rotterdam on projects in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Portugal and China.

Clients are social housing companies, housing corporations, project developers, local governments and individuals. We are very interested in future users (individuals and residents). The implementation of design ideas along with those users is an important part of the work.
