Who are we ?
Bauke Jellema van der Meij established Eiland 8 Architecten in 2008.
The first commission was a private collective for a refurbishment on Eiland 8 in Floriande, Hoofddorp. We are a creative architectural studio and our design commissions range from interiors renovation and exteriors construction to urban concepts solutions.
In consultation with our clients we create well-considered simple solutions for complex commission requirements. Our goal is: limited resources with a maximum effect when we take into account any ecological consequences and the impact on the location. Giving personal attention to people is the crux of the matter.
We call forth all our knowledge, knowhow and experience in designing and building in order to invent the best possible spatial solution, whilst always respecting the agreement and the budget guidelines. To us architecture means communication and already in initial design stages, we aim to articulate our perception of space, and present various options to make dreams a reality.
We take away the client’s worries and will supervise the building project’s technical procedures ourselves.
We are passionate about designing not just buildings, but entire spatial environments, from furniture to buildings to urban concepts and anything in between.
Giving personal attention to the people who interact with our designs and also paying a lot of attention to the finished product is our objective. In an ever changing world we transform individual wishes into concrete designs which articulate most vividly and rationally the individual character and identity. We are motivated by assuring that you will be absolutely fulfilled by our final product.
