Sustainability has never been the starting point of our design process: that has always been the wellbeing of users. It is for them that we strive to design environments that are not only beautiful but also healthy, not only functional but also simply a great place to work, play, learn and live. A place that is there for the long run and deserves sustainable choices.

Fokkema & Partners design with a long-term mindset. We prefer timeless quality over completely recyclable options when they have short-term value. We believe that the way we use renovations to revive outdated buildings has become our distinctive trademark.

Our passion for innovation ensures that we are open to new concepts, products and materials. Combining innovation with a lasting work environment where people feel great, ensures a truly sustainable design. Sustainability may not be the starting point of our design process, but it definitely is its outcome.

A place that is there for the long run deserves sustainable choices.
