Grosfeld Bekkers van der Velde Architecten

Our profession is to realize good buildings.

As an architect, you have a great responsibility – together with the client – for the built environment: the environment in which people live and work. The dialogue with the client and a careful integration from the design in the enviroment, play therefore an importante role in our work.

We strive for buildings with an own character, a special spaciousness, and a sustainable finishing off. Finding the essence is thereby for every task the most important. Like this, simple but powerful concepts are formed, that are elaborated as critical and consistent as possible.

We believe in the value of architecture and in the importance of high quality buildings.

Magic Marine

The Magic Marine Sailing gear keeps us warm and dry on the water and their softshells give us a good appearance on shore. Magic Marine stands for performance based sailing gear covering a wide range of disciplines. The brand pushes to be one step ahead, recognizing the range of conditions that sailors are exposed to; where faster sailing, longer sessions in more extreme weather is the aim. The brand is driven by sailors, for sailors and is pushed by all that the water offers us as sailors.
