BASED ARCHITECTURE

architects & engineers

Our company consist of architects striving to build according to the needs and wishes of our clients

We aim to reconcile the contradictory components, that most projects encounter, to produce a clear straightforward concept that serves as a guideline throughout the process. By studying the problem at a fundamental level we try to discover new possibilities. Our team is equipped with advanced knowledge of BIM technology and has proven capacities among the areas of project management and budget control. The three-dimensional interpretation of the client’s terms of reference, should contribute besides serving functional, with a positive impact of meaning to the surroundings and its users.

What People say

Customers reviews

“Going through all the phases of the process together with Based, we were able to make a thought-out choice. Multiple ideas and options were discussed and that’s when you find out what you basically want, need and like. The 2D and 3D drawings provided a clear insight into the development of the design and gave you a good impression of how things are going to be. They really listened to what we wanted and combined all our input with their knowledge and professionalism. Resulting in making you realise that your own ideas even got better.”

“Based indicated in advance that drawings could be used as a construction contract with our contractor, this is what we experienced indeed. Everything can be checked and there is no discussion about how something should or should not be done. With the knowledge and expertise of Based all our goals were achieved. The spaces of the house are very efficiently arranged and although it has now all the luxury of the modern standards, the traditional character of the house has been preserved.”
