After five successful years and many an awarded project, Remi Versteeg and Stijn de Weerd, who formed the original Space Encounters crew with Gijs & Joost Baks, are taking off together as Beyond Space.
Beyond Space firmly believes architectural thinking applies well beyond matters of space. Drawing from a range of interests, disciplines, and experiences, we seek to forge new connections to allow for the unexpected. We combine creative entrepreneurship with a solid grounding in our discipline of origin, and couple our unconventional ideas with intuitive design. We sit comfortably where art, architecture and product development meet, and mix buildings and spaces and objects.
Space Encounters creates innovative and remarkable architecture on all scales, that seamlessly merges concept and craftsmanship. With great fun and sensitivity Space Encounters designs buildings and spaces for living, working and playing which create a lasting positive and sustainable impact to their users and surroundings. The practice has a broad expertise in transformations, building in complex urban context and sustainable living solutions. Space Encounters is an internationally operating and award winning architecture firm led by brothers Gijs & Joost Baks.
