Architectural vision
Architecture is of immense value for our quality of life. We feel happier, work more effectively and get on better with other people in agreeable, inspiring buildings. Ector Hoogstad Architects does its best to make this happen. »
Sustainability has long been one of the most important points of departure for our architecture. In our view, good buildings make a contribution to a better world, both now and in the future. »
Design is teamwork. We welcome anyone who wants to make a contribution to the design process, in the belief that an open source approach always gives the best result – a design that most closely meets the needs and desires of both client and end-user. »
Helicopter vision and cooperation with specialists from a wide range of different disciplines are integral elements of our approach to the design process. The Building Information Model (BIM) is a digital instrument that fits perfectly in our integrated, transparent approach to the design process. »

It’s an enormously exciting time to be working in architecture and design – not so much because of the technology itself (which is after all only a means to an end) but because of the opportunities it offers for creating the highest possible architectural quality for clients and future end-users. »
