We strive for a refined architecture with an eye for detail and context. By means of specific and clear interventions, a good sense of structure, detail and materiality, we create great spaces for our clients.
Unknown Architects was founded in 2012 by Daan Vulkers and Keimpke Zigterman. Unknown Architects is an office where the work, the architecture, comes first. We believe it is a great challenge and responsibility to create new physical realities for our clients. In this challenge we try to keep an open mind and curious attitude. Built works include interiors of private houses, a garden studio, roof extension, perfume store and stage design.
Our works have been widely published and were exhibited in the exhibition ‘Maatwerk / Massarbeit, architecture from Flanders and the Netherlands‘ in the Deutsches Architektur Museum in Frankfurt and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp.
Currently, we are working on a series of private commissions including the rear extension of a house in Schiedam, the refurbishment of a corner house in Leiden, the refurbishment of two apartments in Amsterdam, the refurbishment and extension of a bungalow and the design of a holiday house. Besides our work in practice we have led a MSc 1 design studio at Delft University of Technology in the autumn semester of 2017-2018.
