Defesche Van den Putte is always looking for the essence of each design assignment, for new solutions and forms of expression, and for the most appropriate role for the architect in society at large. The method of working employed by dvdp always focuses on architectural quality and is determined by a number of aspects:
What is the fundamental question posed in an assignment and what lies behind it? Who will use the building and how will they use it? By investigating the specific characteristics of each project, dvdp comes up with designs that do more than answer the question. Accordingly, each building acquires a distinctive character.
Together with clients, experts, builders, occupants and other designers, dvdp seeks the best imaginable design response to the commission. In this process, dvdp adopts a proactive and connecting role that is always geared to finding solutions and integrating all design and engineering disciplines.
Design processes are often complex. dvdp ensures a structured and open process that offers insight into all motives, considerations and effects. Creating clarity means that the right decisions are made throughout design and construction.
dvdp wants to continue evolving, innovating and improving. That is illustrated by the development of the work and by the office's involvement in design research and architectural education.
