Description, Philosophy, History

Architect Maartje Lammers is a Dutch Architect. Studying in Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands, her architecture can be identified by an organic use of materials, using wood in curvilinear forms.On January 1. 2001. Boris and Maartje founded 24H architecture in Rotterdam. Its goal was. and is. to make evolutionary architecture of extreme quality and sensitivity.y As such, their designs adapt themselves to the ever-changing parameters of 21st century society white still reflecting a layer of softness and sensitivity.Under 24H Architecture, her notable projects include the Ichthus Hogeschool in Rotterdam, the Poppodium Mez/ m Breda, the urban development of Oosterdoks Eiland in Amsterdam, the Crawford Municipal Art Gallery in Cork and the Nationale Nederianden Head Office (ING) in Budapest.
24H goal is to find the hidden layers of each commission. Next to program and site, these undiscovered layers make the answer to each design. By working with various themes guiding the design process, a broad spectrum of non-architectural solutions is found.Evolution: adaptable structures in time providing multi-program use in a single spaceNatrufied: abstract interpretations of nature petrified into building materialsorganism growing additions transform existing buildings into new compositions Art d’eco: supporting environment as well as beauty makes the art of ecologySensibility: to arouse the senses, a building should age beautifully by usingMaterials: with a natural ability to transform during its lifetime.
