Ector Hoogstad has done an amazing job. The DIFFER building is transparent and looks beautiful. It has also become a place to do excellent research. Furthermore, it offers ample opportunities for people to meet and connect.

EHA sublimely emphasizes the prominent status of the garage as the pivot point between cycling and walking by giving one of the concrete columns a swirling skirt as a base, elevating a garage space into a cathedral for the train travelling cyclist.

EHA is a great sparring partner who challenges our way of thinking and translates our ideas into realistic and appealing designs. That these designs are far more beautiful and functional than we ever imagined says everything about EHA’s expertise.

Everything about TU Eindhoven’s new building is exactly as it should be. And that’s quite an achievement.
Kirsten Hannema, De Volkskrant
As an architect, I am both an optimist and an idealist. I seek to build a more beautiful and better world because I firmly believe that it can be done. And it is with this conviction that our team approaches every project and collaboration.
Joost Ector, partner Ector Hoogstad Architects
I really like our school building. It's like a labyrinth that you can explore! There are plenty of hang-out spots to meet your friends, and my favourite areas in the school are the little benches, the soccer table and of course the giant slide!
Elisa, pupil at Hyperion Lyceum
This is a building that embodies a unique renewal, and it will serve as a source of inspiration for future projects. It’s simultaneously quirky and chic, and has been designed with a great eye for detail.
