Dutch Profiles: Benthem Crouwel Architects

00:05:53 0
For over 30 years, Mels Crouwel has been designing public buildings like railway stations, cultural and educational institutions and museums at his architecture firm Benthem Crouwel Architects.

Mels Crouwel is an expert in restoring historical buildings, while at the same time, expanding them so they will fit the needs of the 21st century. The transformation of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam is one of his latest projects.

Although some of their buildings are pretty spectacular, Benthem Crouwel Architects are not primarily after sensation and extravagance. Their main goal is to create environments where people enjoy coming together in an efficient way.
