Why they’ve been nominated

As described by its partners Gijs Baks, Stijn van Weerd, Joost Baks and Remi Versteeg, Amsterdam-based Space Encounters ‘liberates itself from the dogma of strict functionalities and researches old and new forms of space and material, free from self-inflicted burdens.’ While their portfolio includes both residential and commercial interiors, its Space Encounters' workspace designs that make the biggest impression. Whether plant-infused or tech-fuelled, their offices rethink the workplace landscape in a multitude of ways, adapting to the needs of a project's users. In their projects, Space Encounters aims ‘to create something which is so extremely grounded in logic, that the result becomes distinctive again.’
