NarrativA architects is a Dutch architecture firm and a leading company in the field of ecological architecture: modern comfort, healthy environment and biobased concepts and materials.
A NarrativA building radiates serenity, warmth and has an excellent living/working environment, where people can live or work happily and in good health.
The founder, architect Shai van Vlijmen, attaches great importance to great design and the user’s experience in combination with the right technology. For us, biophilic design is not a new trend or fashion, but a well-considered and conscious choice already since 2008. Every successful design uses passive solar energy, vapor-open constructions and warm, natural materials. The installations are carefully chosen and combined well, to create an efficient space with a comfortable indoor climate in an environmental friendly way.
We are specialized in timber construction systems and use the power of nature for optimal comfort in combination with the latest developments in the field of sustainable materials and technology. Apartment buildings, office buildings, private homes, educational buildings and healthcare facilities can all gain from the biobased approach. During the design process, the ideas and wishes of the user are integrated in a holistic tailor-made solution. Due to our personal approach, many years of experience and a critical eye for the total package including the smallest details, the delivered result is a great building with the best value for money.
Because we believe in sharing our knowledge and experience with other building professionals, we introduced NarrativA PRO. Here we give lectures and trainings on a regular basis. Special requests for customized training on site are also possible. Are you interested to know more about the possibilities? Check our website and register to our subscribers list.
