The UK’s JSA and Netherlands based Orange Architects have merged to create a multidisciplinary and internationally operating office for architecture, urban design, interior design and outdoor space
JSA’s Jeroen Schipper and Orange Architect’s Patrick Meijers have collaborated on projects at Orange Architects for the past decade, with JSA (jeroen schipper architecten) adding 25 years of knowledge, skill and experience, and Orange Architects located in Rotterdam, traditionally a city of national and international trade.
The core values of both organisations complement each other and the Rotterdam office unites conceptual design skill with a knowledge and passion for ‘making’, which is powerfully expressed in the new Orange Architects vision, ‘concept and craft’. It is a vision in which the clear cut concepts at the heart of the office’s designs echo in the smallest details.
According to Orange Architects, this way of working calls not only for an out-of-the-box mentality, but also for a sound knowledge of the profession. Imbuing concepts with life requires expertise in a range of fields, and the vision to integrate this knowledge into design in a natural way.
