Bob Manders is an architect who combines the past with a passion for innovation. He uses the best of his own Dutch heritage – for example, an appreciation of Rembrandt’s use of light – and combines this with architectural principles from recognized masters from Vitruvius to Le Corbusier, as an addition to his own unique approach. The result? Unpredictable yet harmonious spaces that make you feel at home anywhere in the world.
Manders believes that a well-considered respect for light, shadow and the way in which nature influences our environment is the key to the success of his designs. He makes extensive use of glass in a way that he connects the inside with the outside world. For example, the natural materials he chooses to work with often reveal the ways in which they have been produced – wood can still have the marks of a saw, or when, for example, a stone tile can have a quarry or have a print of it instrument used for polishing. According to Manders, it retains authenticity and designs that are both soothing and energetic.
